Size: 9.6 x 12.8
Age: Antique; C. 1915
Pile: Low/Medium with nice age-related wear and patina throughout and some ancient old very responsible restoration (see pics) and BOTH fringe ends have been rewoven! The cost of re-weaving the fringe ends to make the rug complete would cost around $5-6K alone!
About: BY FAR one of the most gorgeous pieces from this village that we've EVER SEEN! A true stunner with muted and mature dyes that have aged perfectly, and the color combination is so wild and crazy for this village during this era. This departure is one of the reasons it is such a highly-prized piece - along with the fact that it's in nearly mint restored condition, the size is incredible, and the irregularities and funky quirky nuances that the weavers have chosen to weave make this one of one. You will see asymmetry throughout between left and right and top and bottom - this means each weaver's signature permeates throughout the entire piece literally in every knot! This is what you want from these iconic village pieces. Tribal art's beauty comes from the intention, skillful workmanship, and the final result of their art being perfectly imperfect. This is the soulfulness that we talk about and look for in the splendor of antique rugs - THIS piece epitomizes all of that... AND IT JUST HAPPENS TO BE RELENTLESSLY BEAUTIFUL! :D
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.
