Antique Persian Jajim Kilim, Origin: Persia, Circa: 1920’s – A practical variation on the flat weave rug, this Persian coverlet, or jajim, features a bold, inherently versatile pattern of multi-width stripes perfectly suited for mid-century modern interiors. Ochre and umber stripes with narrow outlines decorate the fiery cinnabar ground while creating a pattern that is stylish and sophisticated yet totally understated. These graphic stripes, which would be equally at home in a western design repertoire, still manage to retain their rustic sensibilities. Hidden variations give the seemingly balanced stripes an inconspicuous asymmetric repeat. Pinstripe accents in neutral hues of white and walnut brown emphasize the bold banded stripes and offset the high-chroma ground. Like many of the most sought-after tribal textiles, this Persian jajim has a natural modernity and minimalist aesthetic imbued with ethnographic qualities that enliven modern interiors.
