About: Never in our lives have we ever seen anything like this piece. Leshgi Star and Shirvan design not only in a REMARKABLE color palette but in such a rare size! We don't see this old of a piece, in this design, with these colors, ever! Very old and really beautiful given its soft lavenders and earthy plums, amazing saffron and rich sunflower yellows, beautiful reds, beige, and many shades of blues. Dusty tangerine makes an appearance and even a subtle earthy pistachio-like green-yellow. The rug is simply unique and in a class of its own. This ancient design takes us WAY back to the Caucas mountains where they never really wove room-sized pieces because many of the rugs they wove were for themselves and they didn't have space! They were minimal and nomadic travels so large rugs didn't make sense for them - hence to have on like this is just lucky. This piece is filled with character and charm given the many ancient repairs, wonderful patina, and even a border that lost it's way at one point and no longer on the rug - so many stories this piece could share with us and will last another lifetime to create more stories for you and your family. This piece will add INSTANT character to a home seeing how it's already 100+ years old. All-natural wool pile with organic wool foundation peaking to its nomadic nature - 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.
