About: A lovely sun-kissed piece from the Northwest mountainous region of the center of where rug weaving basically started. Nice bold center medallion with the great blue corner spandrels. These colors are so subtle and so beautiful, that this rug is really one of a kind. Soft blush and rose tones, nice blue hues with a great antique beige. The main color in this rug is hard to describe, but I would call it a nice watermelon. Fantastic design with nice minor medallions coming out of the center medallion - this adds a little more interest and bold design which is perfect for this more subtle color palette. This is what we call a very well balanced rug with the color and design combo having a contrast. The geometric motifs in this piece are also very clean and symmetrical which gives it a slightly modern feel even though it is truly nomadic and tribal - back to balance and having this rug contain so many contrasting elements making it super interesting. 

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.
