About: Powerful because of the amount of Camel color and sensationally bold center medallion, and sophisticated because it is, indeed, the most iconic Northwest Village rug pattern ever woven. This rug holds true to its essence, yet violates all the common color combinations that we're used to - giving it the title of one of my favorite pieces I've ever laid eyes on! As my personal taste for rugs evolve, I've been very drawn to the organic color and texture of camel hair. When I see it in rugs, it's always a pleasant surprise, but when I saw that these 4 corner spandrels are this color, it moved me in a way - it broke assumptions and the one word I kept coming back to was courage. For an artist and weaver to spend the amount of time to create a piece like this, with the boldness to throw what usually is a secondary or highlight color, as one of the main colors in the design - is inspiring. You can't ignore it, and for that reason, it has grown on me every time I look at it. Not to mention, the blues, reds, greens, and other colors are equally wonderful and add a feast to for your eyes, but there's something about these specific design elements and even the size that makes it super unusual. This piece will look incredible with wood tones and versatile with any color of flooring, pick up any hues in your art, and just a real beauty to add to any space to help elevate it. This is a gem!
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.
