* All of our antique & vintage rugs are professionally cleaned prior to being listed.* Name: Remmy Size: 8 x 13 Age: Semi-Antique Pile: Low/Medium pile About: Probably the most buttoned-up, tidiest, and most attractive Elephant track design rug on the internet. When I buy these particular style rugs, it's all about uniqueness from color-palette, abrash, condition, and any other characteristic that makes it stand out - this rug has all of everything. Never have I seen this iconic design in these colors OR size! The fact that this rug is 8x13 is a VERY rare size because it has the width of ideal American-desired size with the slender length that is preferred for the European market, making it perfect for an over-sized dining room for those that entertain and always have the leaves of the table in. It's also great for an oversized sofa or sectional because it has an extra 3 feet in length compared to the standard 8x10 rugs. This rug is PERFECT for high-traffic areas because of its fantastic body and quality, and a nice medium pile that gives it many years of use with absolutely no problem. If you're looking for beauty, history, character, AND functionality/practicality all in one piece - this rug is at the top of the list. I could talk about how unusual the size and shape is for a while, but let's move on to the colors. This palette is rich yet soothing. It's filled with a handsome red/berry hue for the main color, balanced with charcoal black, hints of chocolate and a perfect undyed natural goat hair as the highlights colors! The undyed highlight colors almost read soft teal but when you look closely, it's a true earthy-grey. It super unusual and adds a sophisticated yet nomadic feel. The rug has the iconic elephant tracks, the absent space between those motifs create the camel track motif, and inside the elephant tracks you will find other nomadic symbols such as bird tracks and a comb motif that signifies purity and cleanliness. These pieces are so versatile with an all-over design that would be perfect for a living room, dining room, bedroom, loft, den, office, lobby, commercial space, and/or common area. Great medium soft pile and fantastic abrash throughout! Amazing condition with subtle age-related wear. This rug is an ABSOLUTE show-stopper. 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.
