This kilim was handwoven in Northern Iran in the 21st century.
It features a seemingly random placement of abstracted vegetal shapes formed by various triangles and diamonds on a striated ivory ground. It is framed green block border with the addition of "scribbled" vertical zig-zags on both sides a motif that is an ancient reference to running water.
This kilim comes from a batch of hearty kilims that were likely intended as samples for larger-scale production. Many of the rugs contain writing in Farsi that refers to pattern numbers and the words "Gilim" (Kilim) or "Farsh" (Carpet) and then "Mashiri" which is likely the producer. This particular kilim has "BB Gilimim Mashiri 4035" written in Farsi.
In excellent condition, with limited signs of wear. Ideal for areas with heavy foot traffic, very hard-wearing for a flatweave.
