This is an authentic vintage Persian Yalameh rug hand-knotted in Persia. Woven with an all wool pile on a wool foundation and is in excellent condition.
Yalameh rugs are woven by a group of nomadic tribes that are spread throughout the provinces of Chahar Mahal and Bakhtiari, Fars, and Kerman and possibly others. The pile woven into Yalameh rugs is very fine compared to other Persian tribal rugs. Yalameh rugs are comparable to Bakhtiari, Luri, and Qashqai rugs in design. These rugs are made with fine wool on a cotton foundation and the design usually has a column of connected diamonds through the middle of the carpet, also you will find these rugs in panel design. Human and animal motifs are very common throughout these rugs. The newer Yalameh rugs have stunning shades of green, yellow, orange, red, light blue and blue, whereas the older Yalameh rugs have more red, blue, and beige.
