This one of a kind vintage carpet is in superb condition with clear rich colours and would have been made for a young womans' marriage dowry. As with so many tribal carpets it is not straight as it has been made on a rustic wooden loom.
Eastern Anatolian and Gaziantep Kurdish pile weavings are easily recognizable by a long pile, medium knotting, and shiny coarse wools or goat hair They are distinguished by bright colours of oranges, yellows, blues and reds. Kurdish carpets exhibit strong bold geometric designs containing variations of hexagon, diamond and hooked lozenge or medallions.SadlyKurds in Eastern Turkey are no longer weaving carpets as part of their lifestyle.
