About: One of the more whimsical and artistic rugs we have in our carefully curated collection! The amount of NEGATIVE space in this rug creates this high-contrast and impossible to ignore beauty as the vines and large palmette motifs look as if they're being carried away by the wind. Super unusual deep plum/light eggplant purple color as the field color, accompanied by blues, mocha and coffee hues, chocolate, beige, rusts, and so many slate blues and teals. This color palette is simply fascinating, and with an iconic border, a timeless design throughout, and amazing quality wool and weave - this rug is an absolute gem.  You will sit and stare at this rug and see something new every time.  The nature of the design and composition is that it is asymmetrical yet honors that classic romance of what we call "city rugs", is something remarkable. You will love this rug; the way it looks, the way it feels, how it elevates your space, and what energy it feeds you every day you see it! TRUST US! 

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.

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.
