Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
There are some 200 villages in the region of Baktiari, they produced beautiful rugs around the late 19th century and in some quite striking designs. This piece is no exception, it is made in a village called 'Shalamazar'.
Baktiari, which is west of Isfahan, is a region where rugs used a similar medallion format to those of Isfahan rugs. This is where the similarity ends, as this village rug is coarsely woven on a wool foundation whereas Isfahan rugs are finer and woven using a cotton foundation. The colours on this rug really stand out on the black main field, which makes for a marvelous nomadic rug.
