Hi Chuck,

I'm glad you've moved that one into the balisht pile, since it fits quite comfortably with a group of balishts generally attributed to Sistan. In fact, if you had pulled it out in 2013, you might have kept the "Seistan Rug" thread going beyond its final 237th post.

I am sure there is more to be said about those cotton-warped herati variants with the boffo borders.

Yes, but aside from expressing admiration, I don't know that there is anyone who actually knows enough to say it.
