This impressive overall design rug is made of silk and comes from Tabriz. Its remarkable feature is the presence of the boteh pattern which repeats itself in different colour columns that cover the field of the carpet. The Boteh motif is a paisley-shaped design often with ornamentation inside and around the edges. The motif is often used to symbolize immortality and the season of autumn. The pattern is considered by few to be a flame, other interpretations also exists such as a leaf, a bush or a pine. The motif is an ancient symbol that appears to have its origins in ancient Persia. The field of this carpet is framed by a main border that is in darker colours - largely variations in hues in red.
