Vintage kilim from the Shiraz region, Iran. This vintage kilim was handwoven by a nomadic or village woman, using her own hand-spun and carded wool.
Around the 1950s, tribes of Arab origin from southern Iran settled in and around Shiraz. With them they brought their techniques and motifs and continued to weave their kilims. This vintage kilim woven around 1950, stands out for its huge medallions. Very robust and solid kilim that will hold up well to heavy use.
