“James is an author and expert in antique Persian Tribal rugs. Recently, he has commissioned some of his favorite antique designs to be newly woven in Northern Afghanistan. These are simply the very best tribal rugs woven anywhere today! Sublime, rich, saturated colors and fine weaving up to around 200kpi. This beauty takes its design from a classical 15th century Anatolian rug that appeared in several paintings of the Italian renaissance master Carlo Crivelli.”
