The Tekrari rug from Soltanabad is a magnificent piece of art that showcases the masterful skills of the weavers. The rug is quite large, measuring 823 by 554 centimeters, making it an impressive display of craftsmanship. The rug features green edges that provide a beautiful contrast to the bright red and blue repeating elements that adorn the field. The repeating elements are arranged in an endless repeat design that creates a mesmerizing effect, drawing the viewer’s eye to the intricate patterns that seem to go on and on. The red and blue elements are of varying sizes and shapes, ranging from floral motifs to geometric patterns. The colors are vibrant and eye-catching, and the contrast between the red and blue against the green edges creates a harmonious balance. The rug was created in 1900, during a time when the weavers of Soltanabad were producing some of the finest rugs in the world. The rug’s size and intricate design make it a rare and valuable piece that would be an excellent addition to any collection of Oriental rugs.
