Name: ICONIC Vintage Mother-Child Rug | Highly Powered and Symbolic
Size: 4.9 x 6
Age: Semi-antique / Vintage rug
Pile: Low/Medium with nice soft pile throughout
About: Arguably one of the most symbolic and beautifully intentional rug designs there is; the mother-child rug is a rug woven by mothers for their children. The large boteh design (the mother) is accompanied by the smaller boteh design (the child) in a poetic and whimsical way depicted in this piece. Surrounded by flowers, other boteh motifs, trees, vines, leaves, and all things that make nature pretty - this piece is the embodiment of the most natural thing in the world - love. A very subtle and deconstructed Serapi border flanks the beautiful design in the field, and the colors that make this rug are nice rich reds, deep blues, and medium lake blues, dusty lemon yellows, rose, deep umber and sensational abrash shooting through the rug in an organic and natural way! This rug comes with unmatched energy, it will fill up space with more love than we can imagine!
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.
