From Kourosh’s own Collection
Tribal people had figured out that poisonous snakes would not cross the horse hair band therefore, they hand wove band of twisted horse hairs around their rugs so, their tent was safe from snakes.
This particular rug has the snake safe edges, amazing colors made of natural dyes taken from eggplants, indigo, mix of indigo and safran to name a few.
Each design symbolizes something from the ancient times passed from one generation to other.
Tulips opening up symbolizes the youth and renewal. Ram horns are symbols of wealth, 4 ram horses together create cross, which is an ancient design and goes back thousands of years.
