About: We simply will not come across another piece like this; age, the powerful tri-medallion design, the countless nomadic village and symbolic animal motifs, perfectly age-given patina and condition, 99% of all the natural wool foundation of the kilim and salvaged ends are intact and perfect, the natural dyes have aged and softened perfectly, organic abrash and shifts of dyes from small-batch dyes, oxidized charcoal-espresso dyes from age, and of course the impossible to ignore size, just to name a few. Looking closely you will see the pinwheels of life, animals and protective dogs, mountain motifs, S hook motifs representing connection and unity, running water in the border which is an ode to source and life, amongst other things, and so many other motifs that provide such a deep and character-rich textile. Rusty field, deep indigo with ice and french blues, camel and earthy charcoal/espresso, antique beige, pops of pinky-salmon, sensational forest and greens, and more. Like all sumacs and flatweaves, this piece has a wonderful floppy handle and feel, and a custom cut pad will add some nice body to it. This is a true beauty and a true gem - all in all, a real example of nomadic art that captures the essence of what these villagers and weavers do as artisans. 

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.
