About: SENSATIONAL Tree of Life design, which due to the amount of beautiful and different types of trees throughout the rug - I call this the FOREST OF LIFE rug. It has the cypress tree, the weeping willow tree, and many others. They are all symbolic and there is plenty of soul woven throughout that really exudes when you're looking at this piece. The fantastic use of colors really add a timeless depth - deep blue-black indigo field acts as a wonderful canvas for the soft beige, raspberry/deep salmony rusty reds, the bubble gum pinks, the royal blues, the earthy coffee, taupe, natural undyed greys, and even some deep teal/turquoise makes an appearance. There must be 50-70 trees throughout this design and almost everyone has some sort of an arrow motif/element to it. Arrows are possible subliminal messages that could act as a sign of the weaver's belief of arrows being a faster and more straight path to Heaven. We do know that the Cypress tree did embody this meaning, but I'm willing to bet arrows did too! All in all, this piece is one of a kind and really unusual with the all-over directional elements due to the trees, the timeless and forever classical color palette, and the odd European in-between size that this rug was woven in - this is a GEM.
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.
