About: I've named this rug Dean, after James Dean - a timeless and iconic figure respectively. This rug really is stoic in its feel - an antique rug hailing from the Northwest Mountains of the greatest rug weaving country ever known, Persia. Uncommon size for the American market as this piece was woven solely for the European market - giving it's narrow and long size. This piece has everything from beauty, to uniqueness, to age, and soul. The lack of corner spandrels gives this piece an openness just having the medallion surrounded by a jungle of colors highlighting the floral and vine motifs. The medallion itself could be a rug - it has such intrigue and qualities of true art. The abrash (natural variation of colors) in the rug giving it its two-toned look isn't even straight - which is SO SO wonderful. This is human, this is art - the imperfection even has imperfection! The camel border is rare and the geometric elements are asymmetrical in shape - giving the rug an underlying charm accompanying it's bold and geometric demeanor. This rug has some age-related wear with some threadbare areas adding a nice and genuine look as a show-stopping character piece!
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.
