About: WOW, let the size speak for itself! This huge piece must have been woven for a specific wealthy Turkish family or even for a commercial or large office, lobby, conference room. This piece is massive and beautifully aged with genuine patina (unlike many of the Turkish rugs out there that have been forcefully and chemically distressed). This piece carries a grace from the Ancient Kerman and Sarouk designs, with a lot of space in the field between many of the motifs and the lovely center medallion making the piece seem larger than life! Nice deep blue border with earthy saffron-golds and soften with an antique beige - this piece is hard to ignore and perfect for a commercial space, or large residential space. A great size for an extra-large dining table if you host a lot and have a couple of leaves in the table, or for a space where you have large furniture because oftentimes the larger furnishings from Restoration Hardware for example, maybe swallow up the rug - not this one! Or that trendy boutique event space or Hotel, this piece will bring some age, distinct character, and even a splash of boho vibes all while honoring the ancient art form from the center of trade around the world, the old Constantinople!
This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one in the world, no others are 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.
