About: Incredible and ancient design coming from one of my favorite villages in the best rug weaving country in the world. Lovely vine work around the all-encompassing medallion, which also is layered with more vine and leaf motifs. Wonderful corner spandrels layered with creams, then french blues, then rich reds, and into the navy field. The design and edge work look like it was carved around the whole rug - truly remarkable. The VERY attractive border is also easy on the eyes giving them something to follow as the vines take you to each lovely flower around the entire perimeter. Long erect diamond-shaped finials that erect out of the medallion are very decorative especially with the willow-like crown that it has above it - beautiful artisanship and imagination from these mystical weavers. Great piece for you to get lost in!
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.
