Antique Striped Design Turkish Jajim Shawl Textile, Country Of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: Nineteenth Century – Here is a truly compelling antique Oriental rug – an antique striped jajim that was woven in Turkey during the nineteenth century. While straightforward in its overall composition, this jajim is a compelling example of the unique and intriguing style of weaving. As is typically the case with antique jajims, this example consists of a series of narrow vertical stripes. In this particular example, there is not apparent pattern to these stripes, which are colored red, yellow, blue, green and white in an a seemingly arbitrary order. However, the relative brightness of the white stripes compared to the others makes them stand out rather dramatically, giving the rug something of a sense of orientation. While not riddled with detail work, these lines offer more upon closer looks than they initially reveal: for each one boasts a repeating pattern of small detail work. An intriguing example of the unique and alluring jajim style of weaving, this Turkish shawl is an exciting example.
