These rugs from Kashmar are known for their fine quality. This vase design rug belongs to the family of Zirkhaki designs, where the designer has allowed himself considerable license. Zirkhaki, which in the Persian language means "under the earth", represents items found in some of the thousands of ancient archeological sites of Iran-pots, vases, statuettes, mythical figures, etc. These rugs have enormous appeal because of their UNIQUE design, which makes them very special.
