This Kurdish rug was handwoven during the first quarter of the 20th century (1900-1925) in Northwest Iran. It features a small all-over geometric pattern in blues and white atop what originally was a brown ground. The ground now glows red due to the wear down to the red dyed weft below. A beautiful abrash can be found throughout this piece in addition to a large candy stripe border. This rug is hand knotted with a low pile that is worn down in some areas. This rug has a lot of wear due to the oxidation of the brown dye but is structurally sound and has been reinforced for longevity.
