About: Timeless Elephant track design with camel tracks in-between. These rugs have the story of their weavers woven into them. The weavers journey through the silk road under the stars and sun and transporting via elephant and camel is the inspiration behind this design. These large geometric elephant tracks create a nice bold and charming feel with an incredible color combination in this rug; handsome rich red, with pops of dusty tangerine and a lovely midnight/medium indigo surrounded by other hues of light blue, medium lake blue, etc. You will also find "both" motifs woven in this rug, which symbolize a seed, representing birth, growth, and prosperity. Perfect for a boys room, foyer, or any space that calls for a soulful piece. Wool pile on a wool foundation - an all-around fantastic rug. 

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.
