About: Where in the world do I even begin!? We can't help but notice the mellow yet rich watermelon backdrop for all the other colors and elements in this adventurous garden-jungle to play throughout! This piece is jam packed with grass greens, teals, peacock blues, slate and sky blues, antique beige and camel, sand and mocha, jet black and midnight blue, handsome reds and rusts, sensational saffron yellows and cumin, smokey charcoal and inky indigos, and more! There is a third or fourth of the rug in the field that shifts from some of the highlight colors throughout the rest of the piece, going from a more cool to warm adjustment, adding yet another dimensions in her all-encompassing beauty.  The jungle field of vines connecting to flowers and petals and leaves that are again connected by branches and stems to bridge to other palmettes and random geometric inspired flora is just a feast for the eyes! Then to depart from the intricate and detailed to meet the boho and Bakshayesh influenced border with the jagged leaf and round flower motif is just mesmerizing! The cool and casual border acts as a break and a recess for the eyes and soul as we dive back into the field for inspiration and soul-searching. That contrast is so masterfully done by these weavers and so appreciated by the onlooker. The abrash in this rug is toooo good with random ice blues poking up through the border with shades and areas of smokey charcoal blues that meet deep blue-black and back to a midnight blue; all while flanking the motifs in the border and throughout the field. The camels and saffron abrash vibrate though random design elements and it's just one of those pieces that will draw you in and keep you in her grasp! It's a wonderful weave and fantastic wool quality rounding this out to be one of the best pieces in our inventory - for design junkies to rug enthusiasts, this piece is 10/10 in our books for it's beauty can't be ignored by any set of eyes! You will LOVE this piece!

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.
