Good edges with new wool wrapping.
The head end is virtually complete and finished tightly.
The bottom end is complete with the original kilim finish, with some wear.
A somewhat irregular design for the Koliayeh (more common in the north of Kurdistan); an open drawing in saturated colours from natural dyes.
Very supple texture.
Woollen warp and a woollen, singularly woven weft.
Old rug.
No restorations.

The rug has been cleaned.
