This is most likely a Bakhtiari bag. The wide format is a bit unusual, but the double interlocking construction is only used in Bakhtiari, Uzbek Tartari and Aimaq Hazara weavings. The colors alone eliminate the Uzbek and Aimaq areas. And the one conclusive picture showing the back - with the much more saturated colors than the front - may indicate a later piece from the early 20th century.
