About: BY FAR one of the greatest examples of what a TRUE nomadic rug should be. This design is so spontaneous, so asymmetrical, and so unusual that it almost takes you into the village of where this was woven and a glimpse into the mind of the artist that wove it. This was a dream or a vision that the weaver had, and she wove it as she went; possibly having a plan but similar to freestyle artists or free-hand drawing. There will never be another of these found, this is 1 of 1. The amount of original and natural abrash that this rug has is mesmerizing; beautiful bands of different shades of rusty-clay, watermelon, and blush run through perfectly. The little animal and human subjects are so raw, and the small block design with symbolic snapshots of nature woven inside of them are splendid. You'll note the "river" or "water" motif running through the border depicting waves as well. You can see the soul in this rug, and every single time you look at it you will notice something different. Really just an incredible peice.
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.
