About: Distressed rugs are "cool" but the GENUINELY old ones are rich, soulful, and have lived a hell of a life. If you're after "the look", you can buy new rugs made to look old at a box store or somewhere like that, but if you truly do want antique - this is an incredible piece. I hate the term "shabby chic" because it is kind of tacky - I prefer to call real things what they are instead of categorizing them under a trendy category - this is truth. Like an old and wise person, this has a story in every square-inch of patina and every fraying thread. This piece has energy, intention, love, and the power of the past inside every knot. What more do you want from an old piece? This is even more so unusual because of the size - square rugs were woven as the perfect size for guests in the home. Back in the day these weavers wove these rugs as practical and functional items, only now can we learn and appreciate the intention and beauty a 100 years later. Back then it was life, now it is our duty to allow the art, love, and story transcend these masterful weavers. On top of all that, this rug is gorgeous in it's color palette! :) Pinks, rose, blush, blues, indigo, beige, and so many more - all toned down to offer a subtle gem manifested as a 100-year-old textile!

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.
