DESCRIPTION: This kurdish-made kilim was handwoven in Mazandaran region of northwestern Iran, in-between the Ellburz mountain range and the Caspian sea. This minimalist carpet does not feature the classic lateral stripe design, and is instead made of 100% undyed wool thread, loosely grouped by shades. These style of kilim were originally designed to be used as protective covers for more expensive pile carpets while in storage, though their solid construction and minimalist aesthetic makes them highly versatile and stylish pieces of their own merit. Unlike Turkish kilims, which are often a mix of wool, goat hair, hemp, and cotton, these Persian styles are 100% wool.
