About: Incredible rug with a truly tribal and geometric feel and design. This is a wonderful example of what you want in an antique tribal piece. Bold, but subtle; loud, but classy; and magically lanolin-rich yet sturdy and strong. Very tasteful color palette with a tricky Coral/Salmon/Raspberry. Because of the natural dyes and the shimmer it has, this rug will change colors on you from deep berry to softer salmon-coral. The blues are unbelievable; teal, turquoise, denim, blue-greens, midnight blues, and deep indigo. The rug itself is just very soft with a very nice weave and body. It has some very minimal touch-ups and ancient repairs which is expected in old rugs like this, but they're responsibly done and nothing really very noteworthy. We named this rug Nemo after the movie Finding Nemo because this rug shimmers like a fish in the water - it is just SO SO beautiful. Hard to put in words, and even harder to capture in pics! You will see other rugs with this design, but we have NEVER seen one in this caliber, and this weave. This is woven in a district closer to a better rug weaving village than where the common rugs of this design come from. The wool and workmanship are both much superior in this piece, along with the weight and body of the rug. The newer versions of this design are much brighter, chemical dyes, and very two-dimensional - this one is truly very special and there isn't a rug in this family that we've seen that even compares to 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.
