Default A timeline of kufic borders in rugs

Hi all,

The kufic rug borders are a highly interesting topic, as demonstrated by the very lively discussions in a recent thread ( which was one of the longest ever in Turkotek history), brilliantly led by Martin Andersen.

This type of border pattern was rather frequent in rugs painted by Renaissance Masters and I got interested in giving a look to its history.
The result of my (dilettantish) research is an obese post of unusual length, which interested readers will find below:
