Marsh Arab tapestry, wool on wool, 60-70 years old, 4x6ft.
The playfulness and light this piece brings at first glance is a good sign of the joy it will bring to any space.
It looks great in front of windows or hanging over a bed. They can work well on the floor too, but because of their years need to be in low-traffic areas.
It's a very special heirloom style from southern Iraq, in the marshes where the Tigris and Euphrates come together before they pour into The Gulf.
Having one of these rare pieces is a great way to preserve and display them, they have survived so much.
*It is hand-sewn down the middle, so there will be some inconsistencies in the seam. There are also natural wear and tear marks, but nothing major.
*Note: A tapestry is a thin flat-weave textile traditionally meant for hanging on the wall.
