About this rug: This piece reminds me of a nice deep sunset reflection above the ocean waters; blush, orange, deep rusts, soft salmons, and every variation in-between scattered ontop of variations of rich and soft ocean blue waters. Pops of soft blue-green in the spandrels, creamy-beige, dusty camel, with deep inky blue-black tones to really ground it. Dazzling center medallion with fantastic palmette finials creating an even elongated feel to the body of the rug. This piece is genuinely old, with so much character and charm in each knot. You can see the abrash and natural variation of color placed unapologetically and with no intention - simply organized chaos in the most beautiful way. I love this rug, it really exemplifies what this village of weavers do so well - bold, geometric designs with nomadic elements that give it the tribal look with soft wool from the mountains these sheep graze and dyes from all-natural elements that surround them. This is what antique rugs are all about.
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.
