Wondeful color three stripe panel. Cm 150x175 ca. Datable 1860/1870. Iran, could be Mazandaran? No idea. Great natural colors. Very very fine wool weave. Yellow and light blue are cotton. Could well fit in a modern art gallery! See what Deniz Coskun wrote about it: "This wonderfully fine piece coming from Iran is very impressive both by colours and finesse. It is woven on a horizontal textile loom instead of looms used for rug making to obtain such a fine texture. The weave is weft faced but one can see also warp faced ones coming from the same origin with very similar technical properties The ones which are warp faced are woven by using at least 2 heddles to obtain a more solid texture. The colours are all natural, reds are from madder, blues are from indigo and yellows from different indigenous plants, are for sure workshop dyes with very deep saturation and uniform hues without abrash. One should notice that it is very hard to dye the extremely fine woolen strings with so much saturation without corroding them. The warps are either wool or cotton, extremely finely spun, the wefts are from very high quality wool glossy and very fine haired to obtain the finesse required. The use of these textiles is unknown, time to time told to be used a shrouds , but one can be sure they are not subjected to daily use especially on the ground to be stepped onto. They probably were used to cover something or to be used for occasional purposes and to be kept in chests or cupboards until being used again".
