Farahan Silk



This is an antique silk Farahan rug woven in Central Persia at the end of the 19th century circa 1880. This piece features a large purple central medallion decorated with the famous Harati pattern set on a beig-coloured background and the corner medallions follow suit with the central medallion’s design but in a powder blue colour. A unique feature of this piece is the small-scale animal motifs spread throughout the field. The border is decorated with repeating flowers interconnected by a vine design and flanked by connecting leaf motifs set on a beige background. Silk Farahans are extremely rare pieces due to the low production making these rugs highly coveted by collectors and connoisseurs.

This piece has been woven on a silk foundation and made using silk pile and all-natural vegetable dyes. 

This piece is available in: 

  • 210 x 133 cm 

Condition: Excellent with some areas of wear consistent with age
