A Shuli tribal rug 139916 225x109

The village of Shul near the Persepolis is a summer camp for the Turkish weavers who dwell between the shores of the Persian Gulf and the hills of mount Zagros. The Shuli rugs represent simple geometric designs, woven most remarkably with undyed, handspun wool as the pile and goat hair as the base.   

Like the one here, Shuli rugs are "honest" pieces that reflect culture and lifestyle from a different world. The weavers made such rugs for their use and without commercial considerations. 

This rug is circa the 1950s and in perfect condition.
