Even on later tribal weavings such as this piece one can still appreciate the amount of care placed by the weaver in every little detail of its construction. Here a large Talish-type rosette dominates an open field, providing a beautiful contrast by virtue of it being divided in two shades of red. The weft float brocaded closures are made precious through the use of cotton, which also embellishes the small ivory portions of the narrow border. We see a similar colour treatment for the flat-woven back, dominated by a large lozenge containing polychrome flame-like devices. A genuine work of tribal art in perfectly intact condition.
