About: Blooming floral and blossoming tree design - this piece is an all-over beauty! The abrash in the borders and throughout, the many tones of blue, deep indigo, rust, camel, browns, earthy notes, and even blush to make an appearance. The iconic fence border inside the perimeter of the true border is a sign of protection as these nomadic weavers would weave this difficult design to ward off unwanted and harmful energy. These efforts can often go unnoticed because we are often lost in the rug's beauty and colors - we can't forget the intent of the artisans and weavers when they sit down to create something like this. This rug was inspired by nature, woven with a lovely earthy and cool color palette (Brown and Blue symbolize balance), and the motifs in this rug were woven to ward off evil and forever protect the rug - that is special! You can't say these things for every rug, so when we see it, we celebrate it and write about it so you know the mystique and allure these hand-knotted antique tribal rugs possess!
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.
