Khorasan Kurdish Quchan Shields

A beautiful and very rare Persian Khorasan Kurdish rug, most probably woven by tribes in the Darreh Gaz area. In all likelihood, this was made for a Khan or tribal chief of a big Khamseh or confederation of tribes.

The large scale field motifs seem to represent blossoms and shields. The natural dyes that have been used have given this rug deep, rich colours, especially the green and yellow accompanied by two shades of light and deep blue. The weft is all wool while the warp is mixed wool with goat hair.

The Khorasani Kurdish region is found within the current northeastern borders of Iran and the southern borders of Turkmenistan, in the northern sector of what has historically been known as the Province of Khorasan.
