Antique Rugs and Vintage Rugs for those Picky design lovers!
Name: Rio Size: 4 x 6.5
Pile: Low and Distressed with lovely age-related wear
About: A really old and beautiful piece with a lot of nice age-related character. The genuine patina on pieces like this shows the age and the life of a tribal rug. The colors are sensational - rusty reds and coppery oranges with camel and piercing blues. These natural shifts in color in the border and field is called abrash and it is a clear sign of age, spontaneous weaving, and the unfolding of art in real-time nearly 100 years ago. The iconic Herati fish motif you can see throughout the field, along with the lovely "bird" or duel horse motifs in the border. If you're a horse lover, you can see the twin-horse motifs that makeup 90% of the border - it's just beautiful, not to mention rare. You will love this rug, it is so charming and a piece you simply won't' see again, or anything like it for that matter!
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.
