This stunning antique Kurdish kilim is the epitome of simplicity with a design of ivory pinstripes set against a chocolate-black field. Only the direct visual experience of this kilim, however, allows the viewer to appreciate the subtle variations of tonality that bristle across the surface, along with the richness of texture that its tapestry woven technique produces. Here we see the intersection of geometric tribal design with a sense of pure pattern that is virtually modern in its elegant minimalism.
