Looking at the back side of the rug you can see all the floral detail that is going into this beautiful Indo-Jozan.
The rug's wool pile hasn't been shaved even yet. The rug still needs to be shaved and washed before the fringe will be cut shorter.
This back view gives a better sense of what the detail of the rug looks like since all you see are the back side of the knot nodes.

About the Design: This rug has a Sarouk-like design that is from the village of Jozan in Iran. Jozan is well known for navy blue fields and floral sprays. The wool quality is very high featuring both a silky-smooth texture as well as being very hard wearing. The medallion and corner design is common but not exclusive. Another common feature in the design is the rope-vine effect seen in the main border. This is very common in Jozan and often times mimicked by other villages in the Hamadan area.
When re-creating this rug, we tried to not lose the common characteristics that are typically found in Jozan rugs since they make the rug so appealing.
