Woven by mountain weavers circa 1880-1900, this wool rug is a worn Persian Kurdish on a wool foundation and features flower heads and fish motifs in the inner field, also known as Herati design. The natural, vegetable dyes you see include navy blue, dark space blue, rust, light hunter green and ivory and the variations throughout are natural, from different batches of boiled dyes used while weaving.
She who wove this rug represents the primitive people of the tribe who washed and separated the best wool of her own family's sheep to weave what is now a most cherished artifact and beautiful folk art. Please note and as you may see in pics, it is not perfectly straight, as this piece was likely woven over time and on a loom inside the home and represents the true character of an old world, handwoven rug. It has a lot of age and soul and more life to give with great charm.
Please see pics for full condition and heavier areas of wear. Extended at a great value.
Hand knotted with all natural dyes (vegetable dyed wool).
