About: This rug is an inspiration and a true example of exactly what you want in antique rugs. Not only does it hold some of the most iconic and timeless design elements of some of the greatest rugs in the world, but it also possesses SO MANY one-of-a-kind character elements that make this rug one of one in the world. We can start with the border; beautiful northwest mountain border with every motif being almost a different hue of the color it is "suppose" to be, but then you get some randomness in color which breaks the symmetry in a subtle and hard to notice way. You see the inner perimeter is the iconic mountain motif where every mountain is a slightly different shape, and then you get to the middle fo the rug where you see the beautiful field and medallion that is filled with the ancient fish or water-garden design. The colors in this rug are so soothing; anchored with the charcoal hue, the soft dusty rose border and ice blues that work in and around it are a wonderful pair, the bands of abrash rip through the rug delicately adding so much depth, and the motifs in the center medallion are so beautifully offset that it makes you smile at how human this rug is. A true artist wove this piece from her heart, with a lot of patience and pride. The subtle nuances that make this rug unique is exactly what makes this rug lightyears ahead of many rugs that may look similar. When it comes to antique rugs, you want the novel, the niche, the uncommon, and the essence of the weaver - this rug is a bullseye amongst those parameters. This is true art.

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.
