Name: Bond Size: 9.7 x 12.2
Pile: Low/Medium pile some are-related wear
About: Well, I have named this piece after James Bond for a few reasons. First, this rug just looks like it's wearing a tuxedo; it is button-up to the nines, cleaned up super nicely, and has this incredible sophistication and confidence to it. There is a masculine quality to this rug, but it's not overbearing. It is graceful and quiet, yet present. The iconic Herati design connects to the old-world feel, and the ancient northwest tribal border gives it space and class. For being generally a nice moody Ralph Lauren-esk feel, it also has some nice personality in its range of colors; deep indigo navy, rich salmony-blush, antique beige, golden-honey-camel hues, and nice pops of soft french blue. The pile is nice with some age-related wear and two small tears/holes (see pic) that can be patched with another rug with similar colors to mask it. This is a really incredible rug combining two timeless designs with a forgiving and infinitely beautiful colors palette - you will LOVE this rug!
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.
