About: Masterful workmanship in this piece. If it is beauty, elegance, and delicacy you are after - something you can marvel at and see the breadth of work in one quick glance, this is your rug. Ever so gently have these weavers woven such a work of art that looks effortless. How can a piece with deep indigo seem so airy? How can a rug with such a grand and all-encompassing center medallion come off so calm? The answer is that the artists that dreamed this design and color palette up, have worked countless hours to create something with such balance and harmony, easy enough for your eyes to digest yet stunning enough to look at every day and find something new. These pieces were woven in a region where classic beauty met the nomadic life of the epicenter where rug weaving originated. This beauty will outlast us and transcend into many generations to come. The colors used are caramel, camel, mocha, lilac, violet, lavender, rose, indigo, beige, taupe, chocolate, and more; very earthy and delicate hues. The wear on this rug is throughout, with some spots more threadbare than others - this piece, in particular, has some larger threadbare spots etc, see pics and let me know if you need more pictures. This would be a perfect rug for under a bed or a dining table, or even retail space. There is minimal color run but never noticed because these hues are from the same feel and tone. These pieces are genuinely old and for the most part, sold as is; as most of our rug collector/rug enthusiasts like these pieces untouched. This piece, in particular, has a few tears/rips that could be secured if wanted as best as possible, or my grandfather can sow burlap on the back to minimize the contrast of the tears. If you want to see more pictures or a video of the wear, just let me know!
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.
