Vintage Jajim

Jajim (flatweave) from Uzbekistan, with deep blue, green and orange details on a burgundy ground


This is a great example of a woven rug/blanket from Uzbekistan. It is composed of narrow bands of warp-faced weave. It is rich in symbolism and the elements most likely represent fertility or talismans. This piece is in a near perfect condition.
