Shahsevan reverse sumak khorjin

Late 19th C
Northwest Persia
DESCRIPTION:

This complete khorjin saddle bag set is woven in the reverse sumak technique and makes use of a signature repeat design associated with that technique. Stepped "ashiks," punctuated at each outside corner with diamonds, are drawn within a colorful hexagonal grid. Likewise, linked hexagons punctuated by "S" motifs and related "E" forms are linked against the white border. This is a classic example of Shahsevan reverse sumak weaving from the Hashtrud-Miyaneh region of east Azerbaijan in northwest Persia. Parviz Tanavoli, "Shahsavan, Iranian Rugs and Textiles" (New York: Rizzoli, 1985), plate 184.
