The central border is uncommon, diagonal lines of different colours and materials forming diamonds. Plate 89 in Wie Blumen in der Wuste shows a similar diamond design with each element defined by one colour and alternating - attributed to Arabatchi. The inner border of Tsareva/Hoffmeister, plate 151, is another variant. a single zig zag border is most common.
The inner and outer borders occur more frequently - Tsareva/Hoffmeister, plates 163,157, 158, for example. For a discussion of the Mughal derivation of the floral design, see Rageth, vol 2, pages 883 - 886. Suggested tribal attributions have been Salor or Saryk, with the first being favoured due to the use of silk.
