This is a special rug from the 1980s. My favorite pattern is coupled with old-style Baluchi figures in patterned clothes is fantastic. The rug shows even wear, but interestingly, colors have worn differently. For example, above the top figure's head are two helicopters and the filled blue is the lowest pile and the red (while tip faded) is remarkably longer pile. As I look at it now, it occurs to me that what I have called the ""Bananas"" when interspersed with triangles, look very similar to the mosque border designs in Mushwani rugs.
