About: When you think of someone or something with an old soul - what makes it so? Whatever it is, this piece has it. You can see the wisdom and age in this rug - almost able to sense the energy of the weavers who wove it. This rug is PACKED with so much green which is really unusual because that dye was hard to dye to wool in the villages; often they would have to mix blue with saffron to get the greens. This piece also has some great camel and mocha tones, and of course the piercing sky blue in the corners that are the perfect backdrop for the engaging abrash (natural variation of color) that slices through it. This is what makes this rug 1 of 1. The term "one of a kind" gets thrown around a lot when it comes to rugs because it's a safety blanket statement that makes the piece more mystic or rare, and although some of that is true when WE say one of a kind - that means you will never find another one like this regarding color combo, size, age, condition, specific elements that make it truly unique. You can put this up against 10 other rugs of this same design/age and this will stand out. You can see it, and if you can see it - that means you will for sure feel it when it's in your presence. That's why we've made sure to call this piece soulful because its mystique is felt - you can tell an artist wove this one from her heart.
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.
