About: Hand's down in my top 3 small/medium rugs we have. So finely woven, so many incredible colors making this one of the most decorative pieces around, and of course, the age and symbolism add an infinite interest to this piece. The iconic Herati or Water Garden design steals the show, but ONLY of the colors in this rug would allow it. A master dyer dyed this rug for sure, the richness, the brightness, the value it holds even after being nearly 100 years old is incredible. Each flower, each petal, each dang knot is saturated with its respective color. You will see just how magnificent this piece is from the pictures, but in person, your eyes will melt when you see it in front of you. The deepest of indigos as the backdrop and canvas to allow every single color to pop; the rich reds, army greens, honey yellows, mocha and chocolates, soft blues, and more. Beautiful tight border to compliment the wild and sprawling vine and root design that links the iconic fish and world motifs - sensational piece right here.

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.
