A GENUINE ANTIQUE PIECE GUARANTEE! A RARE ANTIQUE SUPERB PRAYER RUG ISLAMIC PERIOD. Antique rugs were made with dyes derived primarily from vegetable materials, although some like lac or cochineal were derived from insect shells.
All such dyes were properly fixed not to run when wet or to fade appreciably on exposure to light. This fixing might take weeks, especially to achieve rich colors. Early synthetic dyes gave bright colors without lengthy fixing, but they were unstable. The design and colors are amazing.
The colors are much better in reality than the pictures from my smartphone. Please look at all my pictures as they are part of my description.More info and pics available under request. Coming from an old collection. Please see one more antique prayer rug i have in my listings. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Religion & Spirituality\Islam\Prayer Rugs". The seller is "the_old_chest" and is located in this country: GR. This item can be shipped worldwide.
