About: As if the ancient Herati motif throughout the center wasn't dazzling enough, or the colors with the rich reds and soft teals and slatey blues against the deep indigo ground wasn't beautiful enough - you have THE MOST beautiful border I've ever seen in a runner. I think it is influenced by ancient Turkish Khotan pomegranate and vine motifs - and it effortlessly grows and meanders its way throughout the whole rug adding movement, artistic merit, and a hell of a journey for your eyes to take while the stoic and structured center remains strong and still. I love this rug os much, and the quality of the weave is unreal. The age-related patina adds that rich moodiness and character that you will find in the most eclectic rugs of aristocrats in Europe and even the tasteful American aristocrats back in the day. We know the two fish under the reflection of the moonlight on the pond is what the field of the rug is inspired by, but really this combination with THIS border is just so world-class. The colors are unreal, and the rug in general is just one of one! You will LOVE this rug and feel it's energy and artistic passion with every step you take on 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.
