Jajim

Late 19th C
Turkey
DESCRIPTION:

This highly graphic Turkish jajim draws a tessellating geometric design with indigo and white cotton. The field design may be seen as both rows of pointed cartouches as well as alternating boxes. Flatweaves often preserve ancient forms and the geometric repertoire seen here may harken back as far as the Seljuq era of the 12th century. Jajims were woven as utility textiles and were used as both covers and as small rugs. Throughout Iran, the Caucasus, and Turkey they are flatwoven. This splendid Turkish piece uses an elaborate warp wrapping technique.
