About: AN ABSOLUTE STUNNER. You can search the world for another runner like this; the size, the quality, the colors, the age, the condition, and the design - and you won't find it. This is unbelievable. Rusty Tuscan terracotta-clay like field color with slate blues, teals, blue-greens, and lots of espresso and beige. You won't be able to take your eyes off this piece!! Longer than usual, and narrow for its length, this antique gem is so finely woven for you to see the crispness of its design. Tasteful medallion motifs dress up the field with nice branches and vine motifs that connect and project throughout. Iconic fence design around the perimeter to protect the rug from negativity (similar to the Turkish Evil Eye), and so many more beautiful elements to note in this piece. PERFECT for a kitchen, hallway, entryway, or even side of a bed. Great wool from the mountains of one of the most sought after rug weaving villages of all time!
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.
