About: What an incredible antique runner. This hails from the mountainous regions where the nomads take care of their own sheep and goats - feed them, groom them, and truly treat them like their family as they are the main source of their livelihood. These nomads sheer the sheep, wash the wool, spin the wool, dye the wool, and then start weaving these pieces; it takes an entire village as everyone is involved for these antique pieces - how amazing is that?! Ok, back to this specific piece - the deep indigo is the perfect canvas for the amazing array of colors to pop. This rug is softened with the antique beige and even buttery hues, lots of nice madder root reds, rusts, beautiful teals and green abrash throughout this whole piece. Nice back and forth between the deep navy and inky blue and all kissed with a great medium lake blue color. This rug is filled with nomadic stars, pinwheels, geometric elements, and even abstract bird and animal motifs. Really nice artistic vine and geometric floral design in the border and an all-over heck of a piece - true mystical 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.
