ADDENDUM: Although it is a much later example from the early 20th century, I found one other similar designed antique Shahsavan sumak weaving published in the antique rug book literature displaying this "honey-comb" field design. It was attributed to the Khamseh Shahsavan living in the area of Bijar. Refer to: Parviz Tanavoli, "Shahsavan", 1985, plate 164.
