First of all, the spontaneity and the strong character of this Caucasian-like design with its many faulty executions, full of stylized animals and geometric flowers, led me to think it was woven by Kurds. They are mostly concentrated in Kurdistan and spread along the northern Iranian border, where they remained semi-nomadic for a long time. The characteristic zigzag meandering design of the borders points to the Kurds of Khorassan as does the color, especially the tomato red, gold yellow, blue and white. Finally, the structure is consistent with this attribution.

Kurds of Khorassan came from eastern Turkey and Karabagh in the 16th century, so similarities in design are not surprising (Jenny Housego)

My attribution is Kurdish Khorassan, northeast Persia.

Do you agree or disagree?
