Vivid geometric rug featuring a brick red field, tribal abrash, and a electric blue and mint green highlights. The technique to incorporate the bold accent colors is quite unusual.
The carpet was handwoven in the Hamadan district, which consists of a constellation of villages in central Iran that produce many of the finest tribal and geometric rugs in the world.
Condition is excellent with some signs of even wear from normal use. The fringes and side cords are in fine condition.
The changes of color in the field due to changes in related wool dye batches are known as abrash, and they create a deliberate painterly effect much desired in authentic village and tribal rugs.
