About: I had to name this rug Juliette because it is just so beautiful, just so romantic, and just so iconic. And yes, I am fully aware of how cheesy that is but this piece is really like a Shakespear story within these four borders. The village that is known for weaving the best whimsical vines and artistic floral poetry really wove gold with this piece. Royal vases, sprawling peacock-like flowers, and flora hanging from chandelier-like flower baskets dress this piece throughout, along with long meandering stems linking one iconic flower to another. I have NEVER seen a Plum color like this as the primary color of a rug. Deep Purples, maroon-like hues with velvety eggplants come through accompanied by piercing midnight blues, peacock blues, and deep indigo blues. Camel highlights with salmon and coral-filled motifs in the border are a perfect frame to a boundlessly beautiful field. This is one of, if not the moodiest rug I've ever witnessed in my life. Very Ralph Lauren, very rich with character, and carries a heaviness and depth to it. It is almost if not a 100-year-old piece with a small 6-inch section that is worn and my grandfather will simply secure that area to keep it from unraveling but still staying true to an untouched and original look. So, it will be secured but still have the same aesthetic. All in all, this is a true gem that will elevate any room it finds and not only play nicely with woods, leathers, and other fabrics but really bring an entire room to life yet staying quaint and subdued. Remarkable 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.

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.
