Size: 10 x 12
Pile: Low with patina
About: Striking and powerful design with highly masculine geometric patterns and motifs. This piece is woven from extremely tough and rugged wool that will last a lifetime, but somehow still relatively soft for a rug with low pile and patina. This piece has the most sensational color palette with deep earthy golds and saffrons and camel with a significant amount of grassy greens and teals. Lovely reds, rose, and blues anchor the piece and help shape a wonderful and exotic medallion. This piece has been resized by a master repair person and although it's very hard to tell, it'll be nearly impossible to notice if under or surrounded by furniture (bedroom, living room, dining room, retail space, office, hotel, etc). Also, note the borders aren't the exact same size as a portion of the perimeter is also resized by a master repairman many moons ago! If this rug wasn't resized, it would be a $10K rug. This rug has incredible abrash throughout as I've tried to point out just a bit of it, and it has genuine age-related patina and wear throughout with some areas more than others (seen in pic). You'll also note that we've taken the picture of this rug from both the light side and the dark side; hence a softer more subdued side looking at it from one end, and from the other end you will note a richer darker side. That has to do with both the light at the time of photographing it and taking pics with the nap and against the nap. If you have a lot of natural light, the rug will read softer, if you have a darker space, it'll read richer - but either way, it is a substantial rug with a nice heaviness to it, not only in weight and quality but also in colors and depth. So if you want a super light rug, go with something else, but if you want something earthy and rich and bold and striking and masculine - this is a phenomenal piece. If you want more pics or have any other questions, just let me know!
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.
