Age: Antique

Pile: Low with patina throughout

About: Without a doubt one of the most sensational, charming, and BEAUTIFUL pieces we have. The colors, the patina, the lack of perfection in shape, and all the small nuances that the weavers have left us to admire - it is all there. Looking at this piece from a birds-eye view, it looks like a watermelon has been sliced open in half and floating in a pound around the water blue corners. The deep indigo and ice blue in the medallion create this stark contrast as the focal point, the incredible grassy green lilypad colored corners give us the colors of the lush vegetation near the villages these pieces were woven, and the nice warm rusty fire-strawberry red provides us a nice buffer between the cool and earthy colors that surround it. Even the soft wheat hue of beige traces some of the vines and roots to add a nice pop to the rug so the eyes can play even more. Incredible tangerine and apricot colors in the border and throughout the guard borders are so unique for a piece from the Northwest mountains. Lovely serrated finials poking out of the medallion to balance the piece out, and of course the iconic Serapi turtle border motif with bands of abrash throughout. All in all, this piece is a showstopper. If you can use this nicely slender European size, or if your space is larger and you're thinking of a piece to layer over jute, this is a truly incredible contender! You will LOVE this rug and you won't be able to take your eyes off it!! 

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 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.
