Khamseh Rug

This lovely Khamseh rug is full of tribal charm with the classic three medallion design and lots of chickens. However, what makes it special are the absolutely exquisite dyes. All the colours, the light blues, golds, greens, and reds are the best that one could could wish for in a nomadic rug of this period. The light blue background in the field is itself a rarity, but is also the perfect backdrop for everything else that is going on in this rug. The wool quality is also excellent. It has been professionally cleaned. There are some old repairs and the ends are re-woven, but this rug sings, and is the connoisseur\'s choice.
