About: This rug is simply a work of art with so much soul, history, culture and depth it's not even funny.  Woven in a village in Iran by the Qashqai tribe, this rug is an iconic example of what charm and humanity these weavers bring to their pieces.  These rugs are spontaneous and whimsical, filled to the brim with symbolic motifs and symbols; animals that represent protection, hook motifs that symbolize marriage and unity, birds that signify heaven on earth and seeds that represent birth and growth.  These colors are as moody as it gets; charcoal black, deep espresso hints, slatey-blues, antique beige softens it up, subtle warm reds highlights with many mono-chromatic notes as well. Worn beautifully with genuine age related patina making it a VERY attractive and old piece.  Wool pile and wool foundation speaking to its a nomadic heartbeat.  This is a thinner rug with no pile, I would recommend a pad for sure (like all rugs) unless you're hanging it on the wall, and if you're using it on the floor I would put it in a slightly lower traffic area.  This is a collector and/or rug enthusiasts rug, and/or someone that simply loves the art-form that is nomadic village rugs.

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.
