(Connoisseur-Caliber) Certain to fascinate, the extremely fine weave of this rug from the tribal Afshar village of Niriz produces an exquisite clarity, where every nuanced boteh and flowerhead motif is rendered in precise, crystalline detail. Luminescent wool causes colors to shine with undiminished intensity, enhancing the field of boteh or sprouting seed motifs and the handsome borders with glowing shades of coral, apricot, sand and indigo. Belying its tribal roots, painstaking craftsmanship imparts an absorbing, individualistic quality that is admired by aficionados of Niriz work. Learn About This Rug Type
