100 YEAR OLD IRAQI CATTLE RUG
Our fantastic Iraqi cattle rug is a piece of history embodying the intricacies of Kilim carpet
The symbols woven into Iraqi’s carpets can be traced back to the Babylonians in 2000BC or to the
Asyrians who followed and used circles, squares, stylized animals or flowers.
The organic dyes used were made from indigenous plant roots or flowers. These dyes produced
distinctive vivid colours from burnt orange and fuschias to deep reds and browns.
Our beautiful rare rug reflects these typical colours and is an absolute must to add to your collection.
It once adorned the back of either a camel or a horse or perhaps even a cow. A special feature is the
stitching down the centre where both halves do not match, adding to the interest of an already
amazingly unique piece of weaving.
You might like to lay this rug at your feet but it makes a sensational wall hanging. We invite you to
come and see it for yourself. It is a treat to behold! The measurements are 1.5 X 1.1 metres and the
price is a steal at $3500.
