Senneh/Sanandaj Rugs: Sennah Kelim

4 by 9 Sennah Kelim

Of all the Persian Flatweaves the kelims of Sennah are the most sophisticated in both execution and design. Sennah kelims are finer than most other Persian flatweaves and this one is a good example. The flowers in this particular kelim are more sophisticated than usual for these rugs. Sennah kelims are Kurdish but far finer and more sophisticated than typical for any other area.






Sennah kelim, Sanandaj, Iran 20th century, 9 foot 9 inches by 4 foot 3 inches. (not including fringe).

Structure: Slit tapestry weave.

Yarn Spin: Z.

Warp: cotton.

Weft: Wool ground color.

Ends: Warp fringe.

Selvages: Plain selvages.

Further Notes: Pristine like new condition.

This rug while rather fine will still stand up to floor use. While most carpets were made for export these kelims were often used in Iran by a wide variety of peoples.
