Central medallions contain red octagonal figures decorated with geometric sixteen petal flower. The rug is bordered with four stripes; the central stripe is wide with geometric ornament. It is bordered by two narrow stripes with floral ornament. The fourth stripe represents a ‘meander’ — a zigzag line.
