About: Fantastic Antique rug from the northwest of the best rug weaving country in the world. This rug is inspired by ancient architecture, poetry, and of course nature. The whimsical and distinct vine and branch motifs add this sense of fluidity and sophistication, the floral palmette design and curvature emblems are also inspired by old coat-of-arms designs that date way way back. This soft blue is a great all-over subtle color for a lighter feel and unusual for antique rugs as most are rich with vibrant colors. The toned-down salmon border with beautiful natural hues of taupe and grey add a great outline color and of course, the saffron-gold introduces some really nice earthiness to add to this tremendous and extensive color palette. Just a beautifully refined and sophisticated piece. Great age-related wear on the ends and some patina throughout adding nice age and character. T
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.
