Description

A striking kilim woven by Qashqa'i nomads during the last quarter of the 19th century.
These kilims were specifically woven for compartmentalising the black-tent, providing privacy for men, women, children and guests. Another use was to cover the bedding stacked around the circumference of the tent during sedentary periods. Today, these kilims provide a highly decorative and minimalistic look on wooden floors.
Size: 2.54 x 1.43m (8' 4" x 4' 8").
Viewing by appointment only.
Internal Ref: BM/K2
