SIZE 1.7 X 2.2 FEET, MADE OF FINE QUALITY BABY LAMB'S WOOL PILE ON COTTON FOUNDATION, ALL NATURAL VEGETABLE DYE, INCORPORATING A BEAUTIFUL ALLOVER MEDALLION DESIGN AND CONTRASTED MAGNIFICENTLY BY AN INTRICATE FLORAL BORDER. A RARE AND HARD TO FIND RUG IN TODAY'S MARKETPLACE. COUNTRY OF ORIGIN: IRAN.CARPET-WEAVING IS ONE OF THE MOST ANCIENT FORMS OF TURKMEN APPLIED ART. THE MAGICAL BEAUTY AND LONGEVITY OF TURKMEN RUGS COME FROM THE TRADITIONS OF CARPET-WEAVING, THAT REACHED HIGH PERFECTNESS AND ARTISTIC EXPRESSIVENESS OF GEL DURING THE MANY CENTURIES OF ITS EXISTENSE. IT'S HARD TO SAY WHEN THE TURKMEN PEOPLE BEGAN TO WEAVE THEIR FIRST RUGS, TOO HARD. WE MAY JUST SUPPOSE THAT THEY WEAVE THEM FROM THE VERY ANCIENT TIME.
