Ersari Torba Yomud Influenced 20th century

Note: I discussed this with Mark Keshishian former President of ORRA and he suggested a Yomud influence to Diamond Guls with latchhooks. Thsat made me think and I immediately saw the triparate device in the outer border. This triparate device is most commonly seen in Yomud weaving and I recognise it most commonly from Yomud Ensis.
