    Based on their stylistic idiosyncrasies and technical features, rare Kuba rugs of this kind, with a Khirdaghyd design in a yellow field and a characteristic border section, probably belong to the Zeikhur group. The few published examples, most of them in the runner format, resemble each other so closely that it is considered certain they share the same provenance. – Replaced selvedges, several restored areas.
