Persian Yalameh 90 x 60 cm (PEY101)
Size: 90 x 60 cm
Yalameh is the name given to the colourful southern Iranian carpets woven
primarily in and around the village of Aliabad in the southern Iranian province of
Fars. Pieces from this origin were formerly called Shekarlu, but they were very rare.
They were traditionally more colourful than other southern Iranian pieces, the
palettes of which were restricted to reds and dark blues.
In recent years, the supply of Shekarlu rugs had become restricted. Then, in the
1960s and 70s, a new type of rug appeared on the market. These were Yalameh.
They were as colourful as the Shekarlu rugs, but with a stronger emphasis on blues.
The weave and designs are generally more regular than those of Sherkalu rugs.
They share many of the characteristics of tribal pieces; made of 100% wool with a
fondness for bright colours and geometrical designs. The colours show more variety
than is usual for tribal rugs, with soft shades - of red, pink, blue green and yellow.
All the motifs however are entirely traditional and all sizes are produced. Other
weaving centres which come within the general category of Yalameh are Shekarlu.
This one is woven with good quality wool and is very hard wearing as well as being very
decorative and beautiful. The design is very interesting and is a very primitive way of
showing the medallion and tribal motifs.
