This tribal wool rug from circa 1880 features a larger scale boteh all over design and it comes from a nomadic group known for their unique aesthetic and craftsmanship. Each boteh (paisley) holds a flower, symbolizing sprouting life.
A F S H A R rugs from the arid terrain of southeast P E R S I A are considered collectibles and almost always have a beautiful wool foundation, making them extraordinary, floppy rugs at the handle. The decline of the tribe has only made these old rugs all the more desirable. Most of the rugs from this tribe were woven small and they make stunning floor pieces or can be hung as wall art.
