Striking geometric tribal runner from the Khamseh area, northern Hamadan region. Gorgeous colors, and the blues and salmon in particular appear to be natural dyes. Very minor wear. The wool pile is fairly thick. The warp is natural cotton.

Very good overall condition. The rug has been professionally WASHED and is ready for the floor. 1950s — 1960s. Size is 10 ft. 5 in. by 3 ft. 7 in.

To add a little confusion, there is also a Khamseh confederation in the Fars District of southwest Iran. The confederation consists of five tribes (khamseh means ‘five’ in Arabic) and was formed as a counterbalance to the Qashqai. (Although Farsi is the official language of Iran, many other languages are spoken including Turkish, Kurdish, Armenian, Luri, and Arabic.)

Many rugs in the northern Hamadan area are woven by Kurdish weavers, and this is possibly true for this bold village rug.

The price is $489. Shipping is $39.
