Such Kurdish rugs from Northern Iraq were probably never intended for the bazaar and commerce as demonstrated here in the unusually large example having been made on a domestic narrow loom. They are typically of course but nevertheless robust by nature and easily recognised. Such carpets were hardly known in the west until comparative recent times.
