About: Third eye rug... I look at this piece and I see a universe in the medallion alone. Something moving, something significant. There is a power to this rug that is special - that is of course because these weavers are artistic and can pull out of the onlooker whatever is already inside - the use of colors highlight the center motif, the layered shades create a depth that sends me into the core of this piece. Very hard to explain. But that's enough of what I think! Let's talk about the piece itself - lovely earthy camel hues, sensational blues, asymmetrical floral motifs the center of the rug adding that artistic and one of one birthmark. The Bakshayesh inspired border with the jagged leaf motifs to add this nice movement to the border as it flows into the calm and soothing center. Bright vivid colors meet the subdued hues of the natural browns and soft sands. All in all, the rug is fantastic - and it will evaluate any space and any object(s) it is near!
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.
