Description:

The skill of an experienced weaver and the masterful utilization of exceptional color are the primary features of this special weaving.

The olduz or 'star' motif is the basis for what is a simple composition. While keeping a compositional balance, the base design is expanded by the use of variation on the 'star' pattern.

For example, some 'stars' are displayed within a diamond shape; others are not.

There are slight modifications on the eight-pointed 'star' form.

Radiating light extend from the bodies of some 'star' forms.

The main border ground is ivory. Serrated 'star' motifs of the border retain the same orientation on the sides as well as the top and bottom.

A small point, perhaps, yet it does illustrate the 'attention to detail' of this weaver.

The all natural dyes are outstanding in both range and saturation.

The nuanced tonality of several colors cannot be accurately reproduced on a computer monitor.

Condition:
Very good. There are several, small areas of minor surface wear. The side wraps have some wear.
Structure:
Sumak with no countering in the extra-weft wrapping.
