About: There is so much to speak about on this piece, but I will try and keep it short. This is an antique tribal rug woven in the greatest rug weaving country in the world, and like most tribal rugs, this contains an immense amount of soul and story. All of the little motifs in the field of the rug are called "Boteh", which are little seeds that symbolize birth, growth, and fertility. However, this piece has one large boteh (the mother) with a smaller boteh (the daughter) next to it. This could mean a serious of things; that this was woven by a mother WITH her daughter(s) helping, that this was woven by a pregnant mother dedicated to her child to be, that this was woven by two mothers together in honor of their children, and/or another variation of this combination of mother/daughter relationship. Beyond it's symbolism, the color palette is sensational; deep indigo, beautiful lake blue, dusty tangerine, salmon-apricot, lots of chocolate highlights, with an unusual amount of pastel-toned teal. Wonderful abrash throughout this piece, with an open and artistic blooming flower border. This piece will bring so much soul, good energy, and beauty to any space. 

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.
