Bijar, W Iran

1920s, kilim


1.4 m by 3.2 m

Old Bijar Kilim, natural dyes and lovely "pepper pot" warps. Indicative of a tribal or village provenance.

Made by Kurdish women weavers in the west of Iran to a classic traditional design called the "eye dazzler"

Vibrant, but subtle, colours move across the piece in waves giving it a very modern feel, even though the design is an ancient tribal one.
