Flokija Patterned

Mountains to the west of Korçe

First half of 20th century, pre-WW2

This flokija carpet is unusually small and was either intended to be used by a child as a sitting and sleeping mat, or was used to cover a bench or divan. Outlined in indigo, the undyed wool field contains three yellow diamonds outlined in indigo and linked together. It is possible that it is a fragment of a larger piece, or that the indigo border on one end was deliberately not included to indicate its potential use as a prayer carpet. This is an interesting, complicated piece with a unique pattern.
