About: This is truly one of the most soulful pieces we've ever come across and have ever acquired. Wool pile with natural goat hair as the foundation speak to the essence of its tribal nature. This piece comes from the Southwest mountains of the greatest rug weaving country in the world. This design is inspired by the old Coat of Arms of the ancient army, and equally the 3 medallions each represent home or the tent of the weavers - the blue usually refers to as a pond or water. The amount of greens in this rug is simply astonishing - green is the most difficult color to dye in the mountains and villages, and to see this much green is significant. The softer ice blues are a wonderful decision by the weavers and dyers to balance the wonderfully rich and handsome strawberry red. There is beautiful village life woven throughout this piece with so many asymmetrical elements in the spontaneous weavings; birds, peacocks, fish, sheep, dogs, chickens, shrubs, trees, stars, pinwheels and so many more icons and symbols are woven throughout - this piece is a story book unfolding in front of our eyes. If you're an old soul, and into the true art of rug weaving - this is a wonderful piece for your collection and your home; unique, relevant, authentic, and captures all we want in the old village pieces we love. True character piece.
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.
