The palmette is a design element said to resemble a cross section, or sometimes side view, of a woven stylized Lotus Flower.  palmettes are found in many rugs, and take many different shapes/forms, colors and incorporation in design.  It is not entirely uncommon a palmette would be a stand alone design element, although they sometimes may be woven in with an Islimi (eslimi) or other interconnected design elements.
