Pile: Low

About: This is TRULY an old-world piece with the sophistication that the many rug enthusiasts of the 1920's were looking for. All of the elements point towards this being a top-notch rug; the colors are so beautiful with a very large wide of hues from dusty orange to muted greens and even sunflower yellow. You will note the many shades of blues and awfully beautiful muted reds and berry colors with a sprinkle of merlot and madder root - all against a deep indigo/midnight blue. A very moody piece that speaks to the taste of Ralph Lauren (he has several pieces from this family throughout his boutique stores and in his estates). Ancient Herati design telling the story of two lovers that lost each other during a bad storm and have been desperately searching for each other swimming around the world. This story stems from old folklore and has remained one of the most iconic designs known to date. What is so fascinating about this piece is not only the incredible colors, specifically greens and yellows, but the tightness and finesse of weave. Sensational quality is woven one small knot at a time. When you look at the back you really see just how incredible this is, and here is an example of just how difficult this art form really is. Wonderful use of antique beige to open the rug up as the field is filled with story, color, and beauty. The border attempt to create an airy cloud around the piece, only to be stamped with a more iconic design in the Serapi/Turtle border. Every detail is beautiful in this piece - making it a tremendous addition to a collection and/or to home to elevate the space and add about 100 more years of beauty in just one mighty textile. 

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.
