About the piece

A highly unusual design, depicting much loved and glamorous Persian cats in a repeated design. It is woven on silk foundation to achieve the high density of knots. this is an extremely fine rug. the Kufic border is yet another advantage in making the rug even more individual. A truly work of art and a remarkable workmanship. In the western part of Iran, the province of Kurdistan is situated. Its capital today is Sanandaj, but in carpet context, the older name is still used, Senneh. Around the province, the Kurdish people weave strong, durable carpets. Carpets from the city of Senneh give an elegant impression with a fine design and tasteful patterns. They are very appreciated both in and out of Iran. The pattern consists of rhombs, mir-e-buteh or Herati. The carpet is dominated by red and dark blue colors. The weaver uses thread in the weft and because of this, the carpet gets a typically spotted backside.
