Flat-weaves of the Sangtschuli - Timuri are incredibly rare and this is one of the finest flat-weaves from this tribe that I've come across. In excellent condition and with just a few small areas of expert restoration on the selvedges, the fine soumak work has to be seen to be appreciated.
It is incredibly sophisticated work for a tribe, living in inhospitable conditions during the mid 19th century, and using a ground look to weave this remarkable piece.
The last similar Sangtschuli flat-weave to pass through my hands is illustrated in the third edition of my book 'Tribal Rugs - Treasures of the Black Tent' on page 94. However, what is more unusual about this piece, is the wide goat-hair selvedges - unique and extremely rare.
These flat-weaves are generally referred to as 'Baluch' in the unknowledgeable trade but in fact, are woven by the Timuri - Sangtschuli tribe on the borderlands of eastern Persia and western Afghanistan.
Size: 2.70m x 1.60m (8' 10" x 5' 3").
Viewing by appointment only.
