About: Absolutely gorgeous piece from the greatest rug weaving country in the world. Soft and muted color palettes are hard to come by when speaking about old pieces because these nomads loved using the vivid colors of nature around them for their pieces - so when you see this quality of weave, this ancient pattern, and the age of this a rug like this - all in an unusually soft and washed out colors palette, you're breathing rare air! Sensational abrash throughout this piece; the impossible to ignore two-toned medallion is intriguing as it draws you in, only to be softened up as your eyes expand outward onto the soft blushy-rose corner spandrels. Then of course the random chocolate abrash at one end and the random teal-ish blue abrash at the opposing end. This design incorporates the elegance of a classical piece with contrasting geometric lines that really add that structure you want in these nomadic gems. These colors will melt into the floor of any shade of wood and pop off any tile or lighter toned floors in a subtle manner. The piece itself is so delicately balanced that it is a dream to work with. Fantastic wool quality that will feel like a cloud when you walk on it with your feet, a custom cut pad will always help with the plushness as well. You will love this 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.
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.
