About this rug,

In very good condition, this rug has a low pile, a soft cinnamon field. On the contrary to the common design of rugs in which there is a field surrounded with a border; this rug has a middle section and two side sections. The middle section is cinnamon colored and the surrounding sections are bronze. The middle section is divided into three parts, all of which are embellished with a hexagon symbol. The six parts in the surrounding sections are also embellished with hexagons aside from two of them which have almond white arrows. Each part of the middle section is bordered with a teal strip with tiles and hooks. The parts of the outer sections are bordered with a bistre strip. The overall design is bordered with an thin almond white strip with tiles. Although the colors we see on this rug are common on rugs of this region (Kars) aside from teal, the design is very unusual. To some extent it brings to mind some far Eastern designs which make us curious about the story of this rug.

Colors: cinnamon, bronze, teal, almond white, bistre, brown.
