Typical of most Caucasian kilims, this piece exhibits a simple banded design containing geometric motifs and invariably without a surrounding border.
Whilst the dyes used are of a synthetic variety, the piece nevertheless has a vibrancy to it. There are several small holes but it is commensurately priced and is of a very useful size and proportion.
