This is an antique Dorokhsh rug woven in Eastern Persia at the end of the 19th century circa 1880. The field of this piece has an all-over design decorated with the famous Herati pattern set on a greenish-black background. Dorokhsh rugs are known for having many borders that sometimes make up most of the rug’s design. In this specific example, there are three main borders two of which have alternating coloured cartouches enclosing a floral design and are connected by linear lines leading to a centralised geometric motif. The center main border is decorated with an all-over Hrati pattern set on a beige background offering colour contrast against the overall highly saturated colour scheme of this rug. This piece has been woven on a cotton foundation and made using all wool pile with 100% natural vegetable dyes and has been preserved in overall good condition with a few areas of wear which are consistent with its age.
This piece is available in:
- 363 x 300 cm
