The use of horse hair is somewhat uncharacteristic of Kilims such as this. However, the basis for which nomadic rugs are made (on an as-needed, utilitarian manner), specific & traditional weaving materials are not always necessary: In a pinch, improvisation through implementation of readily available resources often yields a highly unique piece such as this.
About the motif:
The horizontal parallel channel motif is said to represent running streams of water.
Various design elements include alternating geometric motifs and woven interpretations of serpents and snakes. Diamond motif.
