At the Paris World's Fair of 1878, visitors could view a Persian carpet created with a Polish royal family coat of arms. This type of carpet was dubbed a "Polonaise" kilim in 1878. The term, still used by many, refers to kilims actually made not in Poland, but in Persia during the Safavid era. This project will focus on motifs and symbols in "Polonaise" kilims starting from the 16th century.
