Hi Marla,

Well, any thoughts as to a tribal origin? In south Persia it's the usual suspects: Qashqa'i, Afshar, Khamseh, some Lors, Arabs... I had discounted Qashqa'i and Khamseh because I would expect to see the classic end frieze, which is absent here, and, there's no slitweave component. It doesn't look like any Afshar I've seen; they have had more complex border renderings.
