About: This is an incredible piece from the Caucasus mountains! 3 and a half medallion throughout giving it that slightly off-center and asymmetrical nature in design - this is what you want in tribal rugs! Sensational colors with blues, greens, butter hues, deep charcoal, and very earthy browns giving the rug a grounded feel yet lifted with this array of colors. The abrash in this rug is delightful - notice it around the middle of the rug and at the very end on one side. This is all original and unplanned - this is also exactly what you want in these mystical pieces from the depth of the villages where the most artistic nomads weave these masterpieces. Beautiful tulip motifs sprout out of each medallion layering this idea of growth inside of growth. Everything is sprawling outward giving it a larger than life feels for a smaller/medium-sized piece. Lots of charm, and an incredible amount of soulful energy in this gem - you will love this rug more and more every time you look at it.

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.
