About: Iconic fence design, timeless multi-shaped boteh seed motifs, fantastic abrash throughout, sensational color palette, and wool pile with wool foundation speaking to it's nomadic and tribal essence - this is art. This is what hand-knotted rugs are all about. This piece was probably woven by a mother, given the boteh seed designs that fill up the middle. The blues, blush, orange, pinks, chocolate, and antique beige (just to name a few colors) are incredible together. This weaver had an eye, and this piece is a manifestation of her artistic expression. Soulful and beautiful really sum this gem up in a couple of words! One of our best runners!
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.
