Name: NAIVE HALVI BIJAR | Mystical Energy-Filled Art from the Spiritually Connected Weavers
Size: 5.10 x 10.3
Age: Antique C. Late 1800's
Pile: Age-related wear and patia; this piece has seen a hell of a life and has the battle scars to prove it; nothing too crazy at all - minor ancient repairs here and there and there is a little area near the fringe that we've secured but we can have that part re-woven no problem. See pics. Otherwise, this is in EXCELLENT condition for being over 120 years old!
About: One of my ALL-TIME favorite pieces ever - for the rug nerds, collectors, and lovers out there - you know there is something mystical and special about the true wool-on-wool bidjars woven by some of the most resilient and creative weavers of all time. Not only the people, but the rugs themselves are so nomadic given that their materials are organic wool pile and foundation along with the most vivid and natural dyes. Insanely unique variations of pale blues that shift a tad darker or light and then to a blue-green with pops of sunflower yellows and nice rich yet mature reds. The size alone puts this into the turn of the century category, and then the naive deconstructed Water Garden, or Herati, design seems to keep the eyes guessing and the soul happy. You can tell this piece was woven from pure imagination with no template or planning - just sitting down and weaving a magical textile that most likely took 6-12 months and possibly alongside family creating this divine and energy-filled beauty together! This is the epitome and splendor of antique rugs and old-world village art!!
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, ancient old repairs/touch-ups, 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.
