This exceptional sumak bagface was most likely the product of a Shahsevan weaver in the Khamseh region of Northwest Persia. Devices reminiscent of 'ashik' motifs or geometricized snow-flakes are drawn against an indigo ground. This example is noteworthy, not only for its diverse color palette including several green, rose, and aubergine tones, often lacking in other examples with this design,but for copious silk highlights as well. The main border consisting of colorful four-point renditions of the more typical eight-pointed 'Leshghi star' motif is likewise a pleasant and less common feature.
