Dear Marla, Michael, and you all,
In fact I would have said a "a thick rounded bundle" of multiple warps bound to the ground by returning ground wefts and then overcast (wrapped by yarns surrounding weft but not woven in the foundation) as it mostly appears in North west Persia.
Eagleton, I think , considers that "flat selvages" made by multiple warps lying in the same plane and through which returning wefts extending from the foundation (ground wefts) or not (selvage wefts) are interwoven and then sometimes overcast with one of several figure 8 stitches, are more Northerly (Turkey) or Westerley (Irak) features.
Marla, will surely help.
