Rare Silk Mashad rug with stunning quality - great decor rug!!
This pure silk old Mashad rug is a great example of what the dying art of genuine pure silk Mashad rugs are all about. The Persian rugs in Mashad are known for their traditional wool rugs similar to the kashan rugs, but there are also a few pure silk rug weavers, whose numbers are dwindeling and who specialize is masterpieces like this one.
Made of pure silk, this Mashad is about 70 years old and was clearly displayed by the owner as an artpiece as it is in excellent condition and like new. The silk is extremely soft and as is common in the pure silk Mashad rugs, the dyes are all natural with earthly colors. Design in this piece is very traditional tribal as the geometric patterns and writing points to a heavy Kurdish influence. Another rarity in this Mashad piece are the colorful fringes, which is done very much on purpose and called "Haft Rang", which translates into 7 colors from Farsi. This colorful silk foundation used to be more common in the past and is nowadays done by only a few weavers out of respect to the tradition. The workmanship and softness of this pure silk Mashad rug puts it on the same level as the Turkish Hereke rugs and it is truly remarkable to find a rare old piece like this one in this condition.
