About: Beautifully bold and moody character piece right here. This antique village rug was woven with intent - directional elements with the arrows on each side could have stood for connection, direction, prosperity, and/or bridging two areas/spaces/rooms. OR was this symbolic of balance, with the arrows acting as two opposing forces with the center being the focal point. These weavers were humans that experienced what we feel today, the need for balance, the search for meaning, and even the need to express and connect with others - through art as the creator and/or the viewer. That is why this piece is significant to me because although we will never know the intent behind this design, we know that there was one. So, how you implement this in your space and life adds yet another beautiful layer to the significance of this piece. That thought, in my opinion, is how you should view and use all art, not just rugs. The genuine age-related wear to this piece is another great example of a story, and the rich red, slate-icey blue in combination with the deeper inky blue/black and camels, beige, salmon, greens and more adds some more life and charm to an already powerful and significant design! We love this rug!
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.

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.
