Mystery rug #2
This small rug is in poor condition but is I think still appealing. It is labeled by its owner " Central Anatolian rug" and in fact, design and colors match with this attribution. But its structure with thick hand spun cotton warps and wefts as well as the fact that there is only one thick weft between each row of knots and the overcast attached selvages are reminiscent of north western Persian rugs.
For me this rug suggest a Kurdish north west Persian origin.
