The small and delicate floral designs of this finely woven kilim have thier sources in Persian pile rugs and textiles. Because of the curvilinear floral motifs, the wefts are inserted in the shape of the desired design. This technique requires that small areas be woven one at a time.

Purchased by IMA 1915.
