Persian Borchelu 3’7″ x 4’11”


Borchelu is a small village in Hamadan province, in the north-east of Iran, and the people are still largely nomadic. Borchelu rugs are mostly woven by women, with the distinctive floral medallion surrounded by complex leaf, vine and flower motifs passed down through the generations. Hand-knotted wool on a cotton foundation, these rugs are famous for the use of rust, ivory, camel and green dyes.
