|The black field in this rug suggests a different feeling than the others. Black, generally in rugs, is a funerary color. The blue lines around the border really pop out. The orange outlines around the planes give the rug an eerie light. |
This is one of the second group of drone rugs. The first group only had three rugs and the second group had 15, so these rugs are unique, rare, and historically important.
|Wool: Excellent, best quality. Twenty years ago it would be wool from Ghazni Afghanistan, but not it's a mix of Ghazni wool and wool supposedly imported from Iraq and Saudi Arabia. ||Sheen: Very good || Handle: Very firm and stiff. ||Selvedge: Unusually for this group, the selvedge doesnt match the field color, but rather is a slight grey wool overcast. Also, the selvedge turns in slightly at bottom side of rug. |
|Fringe: ||Pile: ||Warp: White cotton||Weft: White cotton|
|Warp Depression:Of all the second group of drone rugs, this rug's warp is least depressed. It has ridged texture where the second, depressed node, is largely visible but offset by about 45 to 60 degrees.
