This otherworldly antique tribal carpet provides a rare window into the art of oriental rug making. The astonishing product of extraordinarily creative craftswomen, it boasts a design in which unbridled experimentation rules, as the weavers dance to and fro between their traditional stylized blossoms and more sophisticated renditions of the European cabbage rose. Its sumptuous natural dyes, including glistening saffron yellow, further distinguishes this hand crafted Bakhtiari rug.
