A dazzling woman's prayer rug from eastern Anatolia

Kurdish Drejan Tribe woman's prayer rug.

Like a stained glass window, this beautiful prayer rug was made in the 1920s by a woman from the Kurdish Drejan Tribe in eastern Anatolia. It is woven from soft, lustrous wool on a goat hair foundation using natural dyes, including the orange which is a feature of Kurdish rugs from this area between Gaziantep and Malatya. Size 170cm x 70cm.
