Origin: PakistanStyle:Geometric Medallion War RugsTribe: Zakini
This classic Zakini rug features two brightly colored large geometric medallions filled with small weapons and motifs on an unusual red background. The wool quality leads us to believe that this is a rug woven by a Zakini refugee in Pakistan. Several blue and orange grenades and small motifs fill out the rest of the field.
The border consists of four smaller guard stripes, two of flowers and two of a 'braided' rope texture.
The orange kilim and fringe in this rug is unique-- it actually continues through the rug to create the selvedge.
