A village rug from Zanjan, 134398-123x191cm

This lovely Persian rug belongs to a group of weavings known commonly as "Musel" carpets. Such rugs are the work of weavers who create them spontaneously following their interpretations of traditional designs inherited from their ancestors and engraved into their subconscious.

This particular rug is the work of an experienced weaver from the village of "Hopa" who has put her heart and soul into making what she believed would be her long-lasting legacy. The use of handspun wool and natural dyes, along with good structure and knots, has made this a rug that has stood the test of time and has aged well to become even more stunning.

Wool on cotton foundation.

Circa 1940s
