Antique Minimalist Tribal Quilted Double Face Kilim

Circa 1920
Bijar Area, Western Persia
353 cm x 293 cm
11'7" x 9'7"

A very rare and magnificent wool tribal flat-weave composed of two panels quilted together to create a double-face Kilim. The dark side is characterized by a monochrome, empty black field embellished by a narrow red rectangle in a way that immediately reminds of midcentury Minimalist paintings. The light side is distinguished by a cherry red one field framed by a black border which is interrupted exactly where the red rectangle starts. The fact that it’s quilted offers an additional sturdiness to the piece and makes it ideal to be used both as a hanging, a cover or a floor covering. Truly a museum quality example of textile tribal art.
