The main element of this carpet design is the Botteh pattern, and in its smaller version: Mir design, in the West known as Paisley design. The Botteh motif is depicted in the shape of a teardrop and represents fertility and eternal life. It is often found in carpets from Kerman in Iran, India, and antique Caucasian rugs. The word Botteh comes from the Persian word for bush.
Sivas is located in East Anatolia (Turkey). The rugs from Sivas distinguish themselves mainly through their high quality wool and very thorough weaving, which makes the Sivas one of the most valuable Anatolian rugs. CIty and region have developed their own original design creations, e.g. the very accurately drawn carnation flower.
