rugs with character
Belouch, Torbat I Haydari
Mashed, NE Iran,
0.6 m by 1 m
Butterflys are an unusual motif in Belouch rugs. Maybe the weaver was imagining a sub tropical paradise as she was weaving this piece!.... This is one of a pair, probably intended to become the front of a storage bag.
Made in the area south of Mashed in Iran, by settled Belouch tribes. The rugs from this region use wonderfully tough velvety wool and have a deserved reputation for quality.
The bright pink, green and smokey mid blue in this little phoshti, speak of a weaver with sure hand and a twinkle in her eye.
