Name: Antique Sumac

Size: 3.7 x 5

Age: Antique C. 1900's

Pile: Low

About: OIder than you think, perhaps turn of the century or even last quarter of the 19th century - this piece DAZZLES our eyes with its patina and charm - so much character from pieces this old. You can see the story in each square inch - natural goat hair poking out of the rusty and clay-like autumn field color, only to be interrupted by the duel Navy medallions that of course have their own quicky elements in each linear inch. Fantastic Running Water motif around the perimeter honoring God's gift to earth, water. Deep espresso-like volcanic ash black anchors the piece and gives it some nice body. Antique beige and eggshell creams lighten it up to counter the deepness - and then even the muted tangerine pops up as one of the highlights colors throughout the stars and pinwheels in this piece. Truly an old beauty, with much more life to give! INSTANTLY richen your space with a century-old+ piece to sit and watch over the other elements in the room. 

This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one in the world, no others are 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.
