This Sirjan enjoys an overall design of traditional navy blue diamonds carefully laid geometrically across the carpet. These diamonds are also repeated vertically. The border has a combination of flowers and peacocks. There are also ‘tear drop’ designs floating aside the diamonds.
Turkish and Kurdish weaving traditions, especially in the use of the symmetrical Turkish knot, woven at the density of 100 knots per sq. in, influence Sirjan knotting technique. The foundation is strong; the colours are vibrant, much like passionate and effervescent weavers.
