3.10 x 5.5 | Antique Caucasian Baku Fragment | Leno

*All of our antique & vintage rugs are professionally cleaned prior to being listed.*

Name: Leno

Size: 3.10 x 5.5

Age: Antique

Pile: Low with extreme wear. Chunks missing and holes. Absolutely gorgeous weave and unique colors in the piece. It could be used as part of an upholstery project or laid on the floor as is.

About: Hailing from the low-lands of the Caucasus mountains, this piece is masterful in its dyes and design. Jagged and hard-lined motifs pierce through the rug in a maze-like design that is interesting yet easy for your eyes to digest. So much work and thought to go into a piece like this - so much work and so much pride. This was woven by one woman, this is her identity wrapped up in a textile for the world to see - exposed and vulnerable as an artist is when they free their art to go off into the world to hopefully touch the hearts and feed the souls of the onlookers and admirers.

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.
