Chichi rugs are easily spotted owing to several distinct characteristics. The outstanding border, a diagonal barber pole crossing a chain of rosettes, is almost always used, as are the hooked, stepped octagons that form the bottom row in this field (see Plate 66).
The designs are crowded on a black field in many colors - red, blue, white, yellow and green, all in shades.
