19th century Kurdish rug in bright colors with a repeating diagonal diamond motif in full pile

19th Century Kurdish Jaff - 5' x 11'

Regular price $3,535.00 Sale

This Jaff rug was handwoven by Kurds near the Iraq/Iran border during the late 19th century. 

This brightly colored rug features a classic repeating diamond pattern of the Kurdish Jaff tribe set in a diagonal. Note the classic candy-cane borders found in many Kurdish rugs. The main border continues the diamond motif of the main design but in a straight line. Two little figures at the top on the left and right of the rug add a touch of whimsy.

Densely woven with full pile, it has a heavy handle. In perfect condition, signs of wear consistent with age. Exceptional piece, very collectible.
