Qashqa’i Bag Face

This “Seljuk star” design refers to its similarity to a 13th or 14th century Seljuk fragment found in Turkey. The precise design layout and deeply saturated colors makes a powerful graphic statement. The very tight weave (195 kpsi) using hard glossy wool and depressed warps may indicate Kashkuli work.
