Name: Julian

Size: 9.6 x 13.2

Pile: Low

About: Navy field with every single color under the sun; a timeless beauty that has been sought after for thousands of years before us, and thousands of years to come - this piece is rare, unusual, and absolutely a show-stopping gem.  Organic and corse wool from the Northwest mountains of Iran/Persia with all-natural vegetable dyes.  This piece is filled to the brim with stunning leaf, flower, and vine motifs with masculine geometric elements that add a bold feel.  Sensational abrash randomly throughout the piece, lovely border surrounding the all-encompassing field, and just an all-over sense of rich history, culture, and art in this architectural masterpiece.  Super minor re-woven spots on the border and look like unique freckles and even natural abrash, and my grandfather has secured both sides of the fringe to keep its original look and prevent from fraying.  Overall in absolutely incredible condition.   

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.
