About: Incredibly old and infinitely nomadic antique runner from the mountains that are known for such masterpieces! You can't ignore the rich and attractive red and the hundreds of variations of reds it offers - from rust to deep rich attractive red and even softer still - the beige and mocha tones really ground the rug and the dark espresso black oxidizing in front of our eyes over the years of this rugs existence is a true testament to just how real and raw this piece is. The quad-medallion in approximately the same shape but all distinctly different sizes offers that asymmetrical goodness we are always searching for in these gems!! The blues are sensational, the greens that poke through, the Burgandy madder-root border, and the Bakshayesh border are iconic and ancient, and there is no other motif arguably as symbolic as the arrow - which you will find all throughout this piece. Signifying direction, intention, and potentially the straightest pathway to Heaven, similar to the Tree of Life motifs we love. This piece is nicely worn with age-related wear and has actually been professionally shortened which is impossible to tell from an untrained eye. You will LOVE this rug if you're looking for a tribal rug to add that ancient soul and mystical energy to elevate a space with timeless art! 

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.
