About this rug: These pieces are SO difficult to get your hands on. They are always kept in wealthy families and passed down from generation to generation and rarely do we get to have them in our possession. We're lucky to say we have this piece and all of its beauty. SUCH crispness in design, very high-quality wool, sensational dyes, and a remarkable weave for a tribal piece - making it a rare and fine piece. The Harshang design makes an appearance with influence from old Safavid Dynasty motifs, known as the second age of rugs. This piece has the iconic Serapi turtle border and it is so well done - and to have it in a more Western region where this was woven is a bit unusual - but of course, it's those nuances that make these pieces so great. A truly romantic example of how two softer and lighter colors can come together to offer our eyes a majestic tale. Both colors of purity, both colors of the most beautiful flowers, and both often used and highlight colors in rugs like this - this piece contains them as the main color in the field and spandrels, and then to be flanked and grounded in the richest of reds elevates this piece to a luxurious elite level simply because the quality of wool captures the dyes better - hence making a richer color that glows. The piercing French, sky, and denim blues cool it all down and the use of earthy hues and even green notes are sensational. Let's not forget that this piece is DATED which is such an incredible element that you simply don't find in most rugs. This amazing European cut size speaks to its intent - woven for the European market and most likely expected for a wealthy or diplomatic family - this piece somehow ended up in our hands and we offer it to you. Very old-world, very distinct antique piece, and really a show-stopping and elite example of what true nomadic art weaving is all about - 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.
