Persian Kordi rugs are from the Quchan area in Khorassan Province of NE Iran – so have the long stapled, silky wool which Kurdish weavers are renowned for. Unlike their cousins in the NW of Iran these Kurdish weavers, forcibly transplanted centuries ago, use the Turcoman influenced geometric designs of repeating motifs. These are tribal shields or guls (u with two dots over it). They use the Turcoman/Afghan colour palette of lighter reds, cream with blues and black which are harmonious and visually very warm. Vintage Kordi handmade wool rugs are valued by collectors so examples in good condition are relatively expensive.
Available in many sizes but not larger rugs.
This handmade wool Persian Kordi rug rug shows the clear bands of ‘abrash’ where the dyes in different wool batches have reacted to light in differing ways and show light and dark. This is one of the charms of an older rug!
