We carry authentic Antique rugs and VIntage rugs that are truly one of a kind made all by hand with organic dyes and natural hand-spun wool. These mystical pieces have all been professionally cleaned prior to being listed and ready to use. Our entire collection is carefully curated with an extremely picky and discerning eye that captures the heart and soul of these weavers, and the story they share in their nomadic masterpieces.
Name: BEAUTIFUL Very Fine Antique Ferahan Sarouk | Island Sky Hues - Blues, Corals, Espresso
Size: 3.3 x 4.8
Age: Antique, C. 1920-30's
Pile: Low pile with some character-rich wear, distress, patina, and cracks/breaks in the rug (see pics) but we've secured the major ones. Ancient repairs and reweaves etc. This piece is fragile and delicate just like our hearts, but also strong, well-made, and will last another lifetime just like our souls! 😀 Handle this piece with care, keep it rolled and not fold.
About: One of the most unique pieces ever with THE BEST WOOL, so soft. Lamb wool. What a dynamite piece - so finely woven, so soft and subtle- yet with some real richness. Mocha, shades of soft to darker blues, slate and moody variations, blush, rose, and espresso - this rug has quite the color palette. Infinitely beautiful design with a center flower medallion, and really nice vines and floral elements growing around it. A bit of structure with the column-like elements on both ends near the border. And speaking of the border, what a lovely and well-structured and tight border that tries its best to contain the wild beauty of the inside. This piece is so well woven, not just anyone could do this kind of work. One tiny small knot at a time, you look at the back and want to faint! It's so beautiful - for those that have that classical and elegant side in your design and art taste, and/or if you have that eclectic vibe - this piece is a STUNNER.
This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one in the world, no others are 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.
