This is an unusual Sirjan with a one way design. Rather than apply a geometrical design, this Sirjan presents its theme in a single vertical manner. It appears a smaller rug is weaved into a bigger rug. The background colour is deep ocean blue while the foreground colour is burgundy. The clever switch of the two colours accentuates the central design that is presented in cream to echo with its frame. There are over 14 types of flowers and 2 kinds of birds, which appear 26 times throughout the theme.
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.
