About: One of the older designs ever woven from the Caucus mountains - Shirvan star design is a bold and sophisticated tribal motif that the nomads of the mountains nestled East of Turkey often wove, along with other symbolic and highly artistic rugs. This rug's crown jewel is equally the design but also the colors, mainly speaking about the abrash (variation in color). Abrash is BY FAR one of my favorite things in old tribal rugs, because it is spontaneous and organic in its creation and materials. It could be the artistic choice of the weaver to change colors at any given moment, or it could be out of the necessity of switching to a different color because they simply ran out of the originally intended color. Whatever the reason, it unfolds in the naturally organized chaos that manifests in pure art. This rug has wonderful full pile throughout, of all organic and natural sheep's wool, perfect for a place with bare feet. Cleans up exceptionally well, and this size is a nice size for a large kitchen, entryway, bedroom, or office/den. Really great rug right here.

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.
