One of the great authorities on rugs, Murray Eiland said, "If we were to designate a fifth major category of oriental rug, there would be convincing arguments that Kurdish weavers are an entity in themselves... Nevertheless, judging by by the variety of patterns and techniques, by their large output for probably many centuries, and by the quality of their best pieces, the Kurds should certainly rank among the most imaginative and prolific of weavers."

With the punctuating effusiveness and dramatic combination of motifs and colors, well made Kurdish rugs are among the most stunning. Drawing fearlessly from a vast range of influences such as Caucasian rug designs and classic workshop designs, Kurdish weavers have an uncanny ability to borrow, re-interpret and create a level of drama and distinctiveness that well reflects the incredible array of quality production of rugs produced in Iran during the heyday of production from 1875-1941.

Thank you.
