About this rug: Such an incredible character piece. Rich and deep colors, with an overall moody Ralph Lauren-like, feel and look. If you have the space for this rug and there are some lighter tones in your room, let this be the anchor. This rug will pair exceptionally well with any leather and wood tones. The colors are deep indigo and navy blue, rich red and deep rust, soft and medium blues, great green hues, golden saffron colors, and so much abrash that it makes me want to keep it to myself! (Abrash is the natural variation in color). It has random bands of deep plum, along with earthy colors. Subtle patina in some spots with some threadbare spots (see pics), and one part has an ancient repair that a master weaver restored but the color is a more salmon tone. I actually love it!
This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one available. Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces, irregularities and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects.
Any questions about this rug? Don't hesitate to reach out!
We always recommend a high-quality custom cut pad for any and all rugs; these pads are made for hand-knotted rugs. They create a body and support the knots of the rug, as well as prevent it from slipping and sliding.
A note from us to you: Buying a rug is special; it's not just you finding the rug, but also the rug finding you. Think about the many coincidences that have to occur for you to find the rug of your dreams. Our rugs are woven by nomads in the villages and remote mountainous regions of the major rug weaving districts across the world. All of our rugs are genuinely old and one-of-a-kind. Like anything old and unique, they are filled with character, soul, and story. The story of a rug is something we think about a lot; who was the weaver(s)? Did they weave it for personal use, commerce, to gift, or trade? Who was the second owner, and the third!? Sometimes the little motifs and symbols in rugs can help tell the story, but we will never truly know - there's something beautiful about that. Alas, our joy is to curate these incredible pieces that speak to us, and to pass them along to their new owners to be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come; both continuing to add to the story of the rug, and to the story of the new owners.
