Woven in the border region of Northwest Persia and the south Caucasus, this Shahsevan rug draws bold diagonal stripes with no fewer than thirteen different colors. While this striped pattern may be derived from woolen textiles, here it is rendered graphically and accessibly in a much larger scale. A white main border, drawn with diamonds, frames the piece and allows for full impact of color.
