Item Ref



A striking kilim woven by Qashqa'i nomads around 1920.
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.
