About: A true antique village gem right here; one of my personal favorites. This is from the Western part of the greatest rug weaving country on the planet, and this specific rug is nearly 100 years old. This piece is made of 100% organic hand-spun wool, and all-natural dyes. Madder root is the reds, the blues from the indigo plant, the yellows from pear leaves and saffron, the brownish-black from walnut husks and volcanic soil, and the beige is undyed sheep wool. This design is the infamous anchor medallion design, with an elongated center motif surrounded by the iconic water-garden or fish design. This piece is thick and has a really dense body. This piece will be used for another full generation, so please put this in a place that you will use, so it can exude the great nomadic and positive essence it was woven with - you will LOVE this rug more and more every day, that is what these true nomadic antique village rugs do - they grow on you like you wouldn't believe.
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.
