Gul I'Birjista is the name of this type of carpet which combines sumac and pile. Parsons says it originated in Afghanistan during the 1960s. In our regular rug stock we currently have two sizes Gul I'Birjista rugs, each size originating from a unique town. Of the scores of these rugs, this is the only one featuring war motifs; specifically, an airplane in the top right corner. The background of most Gul I'Birjista rugs is an off white sumac, usually woven in a medium quality. The pile is dense and compact. This rug features very old fashioned style kilim skirts of red and blue horizontal stripes. Of the 100's of Gul I'Birjista rugs I have seen, less than one percent are pictorial. This is an unusual and collectible rug at a good price because of its recent vintage.
Wool: Pile wool is dense and strong but slightly chawky feeling. Sumac is strong wool and looks tea washed. Sheen: Okay Handle: Gul I'Birjista rugs tend to be very floppy because of flat weave technique employed. Selvedge: Two cord flat wool figure eight wrapped.
Fringe: Four inch weft faced kilim preceded by one band red and blue braided floated weft and finished with overhand knots and very short fringe. Pile: 6mmWarp: Khaki colored wool.Weft: Double shoot brown wool.
Warp Depression:Piled section warps are flat, not depressed at all
