Kurdish Pelas
An extensive array of fine vertical pin stripes in shades of tan and brown comprises the design of this Kurdish Pelas. While the particular arrangement of colors is improvised, and certain irregular rhythm between clusters of darker and lighter tones emerges, with the palette generally cooling toward the left. The texture of the weave is in a sense part of the design, paralleling as it does the arrangement of the stripes. Rarely are kilims with this design woven with such consistently fine stripes.
