symmetrically knotted wool pile on a wool foundation
This allover pattern of diagonally arranged cruciforms is quite unusual for Talish rugs. The traditional border is seen here in a variant form, with the enlarged rosettes flanked by two pairs of triangles which alternate with brilliantly coloured secondary motifs. The exceptional condition and the use of a soft and silky wool pile place this rug at the pinnacle of the Caucasian weaving tradition.
