About: Fantastic Tribal rug with such soft and plush pile! Perfect for a casual space you walk around barefoot or if you have kids running and crawling around on it. The rug has the iconic elephant tracks (large octagon shape motif), with the camel track diamond shape motif between them, and I don't buy these pieces unless they have the bird tracks inside the elephant tracks which this piece does! This piece also has a lovely comb motif that represents purity and cleanliness and a great fence design surrounding the entire rug that wards off negativity! The colors of this rug read slightly differently depending on the light and what side you look at the rug from.  All rugs with a nice pile will read darker/richer when looking into the pile, and they will read lighter and softer when looking onto the pile. This color is a really nice true rich red, with black/charcoal motifs with beautiful deep/slatey blue highlights/abrash as well!! Super unique! These pieces are so versatile with an all-over design that would be perfect for a living room, dining room, bedroom, den, or office. Great medium soft pile and fantastic abrash throughout! Amazing condition with subtle age-related wear. 

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.
