This gorgeous rug was most likely made in the border regions between the mountain pastures of the Kopet Dag region, the shores of the Caspian Sea, and the semi-deserts of the Kara Kum. The elegant patterning of this rug is wonderfully offset by its cream tassels and its curving border, which incorporates alternating colors found in the inner part of the rug.
