Size: 4.7 x 6.1
Pile: Low with patina
About: Timelessly aged to perfection. The patina on this rug just amplifies the beauty - all old things that are made well always do this, it's their trademark. This piece is so delicate and so powerful at the same time. The staggering medallion is architected in a way that looks like on large piece filled with marvelous detail, but a closer look and you will see it's hundreds of shapes and elements put together to create the all-encompassing beauty. The colors on this piece are really, really good. You will note the earthy olive green undertone throughout, that with the dirty antique beige makes it a lovely soft yet raw rug. Then the indigo grounds it all out adding that structure and contrast, and all highlighted with the merlot and wine colors that round it all out. Very pretty artistic corner spandrels that you can see are not perfect, which is perfect! The border is lovely- layered perfectly with light to dark and busy and open. You will love this art anywhere in your home as it will elevate the space and bring over 100 years of life to it.
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.
