Striking Yssima Nini Ferrucci Rug and Antique Sewan Kazak Carpet Come to Sale With 1stbidJul 30, 2023 14:00 EDT
The ancient rug making tradition in Tibet goes back hundreds of years. Tibetan carpets were originally made of wool called changpel, which comes from the highland sheep. These rugs are used for varied purposes, including flooring, wall hangings, horse saddles and seating. The knotting technique used in Tibet is considered to be distinct from the carpet-making crafts in the rest of the world. However, the Tibetan rug weaving industry declined after the Chinese invasion in 1959. It revived in the 1970s but not in Tibet, instead in Nepal. A mid-century Tibetan-Nepalese brand Yssima Nini Ferrucci room-sized rug is a key highlight of the upcoming sale, offered by 1stbid. A combination of bright and muted colors, the Chinese-styled carpet is designed with abstract and asymmetrical zebra-striped patterns.
Another noteworthy carpet is an antique Sewan Kazak piece from Armenia, South West Caucasus. Woven with bold patterns in natural hues, the rug is adorned with geometric and medallion designs in a prayer directional layout. Primarily made in villages, the Caucasian rugs are woven with materials sourced from tribal provinces.
