Kazak, Chaili - Runner - 327 cm - 107 cm
Wool on wool - Armenia - Early 20th century

This Chaili has a wonderful colour, typical Caucasian; powerful, bright colours.
The pattern is recognisable by the chain of octagonal medallions.
With the typical horizontal hooks.

Nice full wool and an even higher pile.
Very well-preserved.
Purple is an expensive and rare colour, especially if it also has a real vegetable base, such as this one. Not synthetic. Natural vegetable dye
does not discolour and synthetic dye does; it turns a pale grey.

The blue is made from the indigo plant.
Also have a look at the pistachio colour and the camel colour, from undyed camel wool.

The edge is undamaged and original. A white background with shamdan mashaal ornament - fire and fire torch. Mazdaistic (Zoroastic) symbols.
