In Persian rug and textile weaving the use of design symbols and symbolism is an important part of the design. In this specific antique silk Persian Kerman textile, one can find prominent symbols carried throughout the design in different styles that have special meaning.
First off, one can easily find the easily recognizable boteh paisley design. The boteh is a symbol associated with life and eternity. By using this design symbol, the Persian weaver wishes to bestow the receiver with a life that is filled with abundance as well as joy and happiness.
One of the most remarkable characteristics of this antique silk Persian Kerman textile is that it uses only handful of colors. The secondary colors are actually derivative shades of the main three or four prominent colors.
Repetition is a form of organization, both in nature and in art.

Surrounding this beautifully complex center, we see a fine floral and vine scroll border. This refined border acts as the perfect frame and helps to showcase the colors and patterns without drawing too much attention.
Every handwoven textile is a gift from the imagination of the weaver. The colors and designs chosen reflect, not only their personal tastes, but also centuries of design tradition.
