The Kurds possessed quite a special set of skills and qualities that are consistent and clearly discernible in their woven rugs. These Kurds of the time lived just north of Persia and were a small and often overlooked tribal community that produced many rugs that are kept in homes today.
Perhaps, one of the most significant elements of Kurdish weaving was commitment to color. While a taste for rich color is by no means the sole aspect of Kurdish weaving, it is difficult to find a Kurdish rug that does possess it. Just look at this gorgeous and rare lavender ground color that has abrash (variation of natural dyes) are enhanced by the lustrous, silky wool that Kurdish weavers commonly used. There are very few rugs in the BPR collection that feature anything in the purple/lavendar shades and this rare and natural dye color dates this rug back to the late 19th Century. It is low pile, in good shape for its age and offers a great deal of charm and decor.
