Because of their utilitarian nature surviving yastiks whether pile or flat weave, are few. Flat woven yastiks have proven to be extremely rare. Here, the field has a pleasing symmetry and compositional balance. There are elongated panels or saf leaves, each containing reciprocal 'animal heads.' There are blue and yellow diamonds in an infinite repeat. The dyes are from all natural sources. They are strong and deeply saturated. The yastik is mounted on cloth backing. There are areas of wear, primarily in the borders. 23" x 43"
