About: Fantastically old and soulful runner with all the imperfections you want in old hand-woven textiles. This is true art from the organic dyes and natural hand-spun sheep wool to the rare all-over pattern with the subtle focal point in the center. This subtle medallion is asymmetrical which gives us the human element that we are always chasing in these rugs. If you want perfect, this isn't the runner for you - as there is a slight and charming bow in the rug as speaking to its nomadic nature. Imagine the long wooden loom used to weave this, or perhaps it was done in two parts and hence the irregularity in shape? These are questions we will never know, but the mystique in that is, of course, what it's all about. Deep inky indigo blues with pops of pinks, salmon, beige, and more. Truly a beautiful antique runner from top to bottom.
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.
