About: Iconic Elephant track design with minimal camel tracks and beautiful little bird track motifs! This rug has unusual and full kilim ends with natural and organic goat hair as the foundation adding to it's nomadic essence. You can see these natural fiber colors (heather grey, taupe, chocolate, and earthy neutral hues) almost pop up through the rug's pile. That undertone gives this rug a very rugged and natural feel, as the infinite clay, copper, and earthy madder root colors fill the rest of this piece. The black/charcoal highlight colors in the motifs and an unusual earthy apricot works harmoniously to maintain interest in a simple and primitive rug. Very sophisticated antique tribal piece with ancient motifs and decorated and celebrated black and beige braided fringe ends! This rug has some great lush pile with a small patch int he corner and a few re-woven "freckles" (see pics) giving it a few birthmarks! We love this charming piece because it really contains the entire spectrum from minimal to nomadic and sophisticated!

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.

Any questions about this rug? Don't hesitate to reach out!

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.
