About: This is an Antique Persian Sarouk woven in an area of Iran that’s known for their beautiful open botanical designs and sensational color combinations. This is an incredible antique runner with not only a beautiful color palette with rich blush, deep navy, earthy camel, and hints of blues, greens, and other tones - but this design is an iconic floral design inspired by nature and poetry. Great soft plush velvet-like pile and full of life. This is a very moody and deep rug with soul oozing out of it, you can sense it when you're around it. This rug has some ancient repairs and areas that have been tidied up but they are minor and add a nice story and character to this piece. This rug has a light side and a dark side (like almost all rugs and that is due to the nap/pile of the rug - so the last three pictures are pics of the light side of the rug). You can see that it lightens up a nice amount making this piece very versatile laying it from the dark or light side.
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.
