This kilim was handwoven in Northern Iran in the 21st century.
It features six black and yellow diamond pinwheels that either intersect with red and white diamonds or float above a red and white grid depending on how one reads the pattern. The whole is framed by a solid green border. A very intriguing and visually stimulating piece.
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 "ZM Mashiri 3903" written in Farsi.
In excellent condition, with limited signs of wear. Ideal for areas with heavy foot traffic, and very hard-wearing for a flatweave.
