About: Ancient, soulful, and charming rug from one of the best rug weaving areas in the world. This piece has such age, such wisdom, and such energy. When you lay the rug down you can almost see that the rug is a living and breathing object. You can see the lovely age-related wear and patina from the 100+ years of age this piece has witnessed. Warm honey hues, sand, khaki, beige, tans, soft blues, rose and deep reds, berry hues, deep indigo, and many more variations of these families of colors. You can see the soft wear slowly erase nearly half of the medallion and some of the botanical and beautiful flowers that surround it - how much character can you ask for in a rug?! This could have only happened with genuine age and use - what's the story of this rug? Where was it? Who loved this piece for decades? These are the questions we always want to ask but will never know the answer to - but that's the magic of old pieces that have stood the test of time. This piece is very finely woven and offers that classic and ornate design that resembles architecture, poetry, and nature. If you're after the character-rich pieces, the one of a kind pieces, and the true aged and time-worn beauties then this is your rug. 

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.

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.
