This Persian rug has a cotton foundation and a wool pile. It is an above average weave, with 225 knots per square inch.
Some of the finest tribal pieces are bought and sold in the Yalameh region in central Iran. Besides their fine quality, Yalameh rugs are easily recognisable by their hooked diamond medallions and bright red, blue and cream colour schemes. The hook or ‘Çengel’ motif is common in many varieties of Oriental rugs, and is said to be a ward against the evil eye. While they are fine quality rugs, their tribal origins do limit their size somewhat; most Yalameh rugs fall within the small to medium range. This piece is quite unique due to its larger square shape not often found in these pieces.
This rug has a peach background which is contrasted by the blues, yellows, creams and greens used in the pattern and border.
