1 in stock
A rather rare and spectacular rug demonstrating the quality of some early weaving techniques to simulate animal fur or hides. Long pile, all wool, warp-faced ground weave; three rows wefts between knots. Possibly mid 20th century or earlier. Excellent condition, slight matting at one end.
There is an article on the subject of ancient weaving forms which makes reference to this type.
