82) Kurdish long rug

82) Kurdish long rug


The design repertoire of Kurdish village pieces is inspired by an eclectic array of sources. In this piece, the border is directly inspired by Caucasian relatives, while the field is a simplification of the classic Harshang, or Crab design, which was first articulated in the late Safavid era.

As is usual in the best authentic Kurdish village rugs, this piece features a beautiful, soft color palette.
