About: Lake blue field with beautiful ivory corner spandrels adding airiness to this piece. The warm rich red grounds it only to have the lake blue add some wonderfull coolness to it. This well-balanced antique village rug is woven in the central-western region of the most sought after rug weaving country in the world. This piece has the classic tri-medallion design throughout, and the iconic and forever loving spontaneous nomadic and geometric motifs are woven throughout - with no rhyme or reason - yet with an overall master plan. In these specific pieces, you can see the asymmetrical motifs woven a little larger and some smaller, some squeezed in and some prominent - all respectively. That is what you want in antique tribal rugs - you want to see the human element and this piece is absolutely packed with it. These rugs are wool on wool, and a little thinner so definitely makes sure you order a custom cut pad with this one. Great patina throughout, and all in all, a spectacular example of a true tribal piece of art in the form of a hand-knotted rug.
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.
