This gorgeous antique Persian Kurdish Rug, circa 1920, is from Iran’s Kordestan region, west of Tehran on the border with Iraq. It features a geometric decoration for which the Kurds are renown in a vibrant palette with crimson red accented with forest green, ivory and cornflower blue accents. The Kurds get their wool from their own sheep and dye it in small pots using vegetal pigments.. Women weavers spin the wool and weave it into rugs using only their memory of traditional designs and the colors of their tribe. Kurdish tribal rugs are very special with each design unique to a specific tribe so no two rugs are the same. This rug demonstrates especially good craftsmanship, which can be seen in the clean delineation of motifs and the high quality of wool used making it extremely durable.
This would make an beautiful centerpiece in a study or kitchen, or even as a rug in a large entry or mudroom. It is soft underfoot so it would also be a dynamic addition to a bedroom.
