Is this the longest Shiraz kelim? So impractical one wonders why. Certainly made for an occasion, a wedding, the reception of an important visitor, a simple commercial show-off, an art exhibition, a New Years feast. Who knows?
We arranged the purchase of a tranche, a collection, of Shiraz kelims thru a third party and so didn't get to ask the weaver.
Recently made, with un-rinsed synthetically-dyed wools, some of which will shed colour when wet.
A stunning uproar of colour.
