This kilim was handwoven in Northern Iran in the 21st century.
It features vertical columns of diamonds in yellow, green, ivory, and navy on red ground. The columns are staggered with most but all containing two stacked triangles which may be an abstraction of a vase or vegetal form. It is finished with a block of undyed ivory wool at the top and bottom.
This kilim comes from a batch of hearty kilims that were likely intended as samples for large-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 no words added to the rug.
In excellent condition, with limited signs of wear. Ideal for areas with heavy foot traffic, and very hard-wearing for a flatweave.
