pillow face


The paisley is a favorite design in many weaving areas of Iran. The dark blue field of this finely woven piece is filled with closely placed small paisleys. Each is placed over a stem with leaves, emulating flowers.

Note the two white paisleys placed at the upper right and lower left-hand corners of the field.
