Persian Kurdish Kolyai Medallion Rug — 10 ft. 3 in. by 5 ft.


Kurdish Kolyai carpet with birds and tree-of-life icons, and female figures!

Out of stock


Fabulous vintage Kurdish tribal rug woven in Persia by the Kolyai tribe.

The rug is in great condition with very little signs of wear. Cheerful bird and tree-of-life icons as well as figures of women have been woven into the rug.

This is a solid carpet and can be used in a high foot traffic area of the home.

Overall, the colors are primarily brown and tan earth-tones, but the carpet also displays a lovely mix of vivid reds, blue, green, and salmon to complement the other colors.

The primary motif is a repeating hexagonal mesh field. This brown lace pattern is a traditional design that look like a honeycomb. Antique Kolyai rugs often show the same motif.

Kurdish weavers have kept their traditions, producing high quality tribal pieces that are distinctive, durable, and beautiful.

Wool pile on cotton warp and weft. 1970s.

The size is 10 ft. 3 in. by 5 ft.

The last photo with coin shows the backside of the carpet.

Shipping is $43 within the continental U.S. Or possible free pickup near Stockton – Sacramento – San Andreas – East Bay Area with prior arrangement.
