About this rug: Where do I even begin with this rug. The size alone is impossible to ignore, let alone the JUNGLE of colors and incredible design inspired by both Serapi and Bidjar rugs (my two personal favorites!), so you can imagine how much I love this rug. Beautiful turtle border with a plethora of colors that makes this a DREAM to decorate around or present as the art piece that it is. Soft wool with subtle and consistent patina speaking to its genuine age. This rug is what we call a Persian gallery runner, a combination of a medium/large rug and a runner that fit unusual spaces in mainly European homes. IF you have a large entryway, or any space to accommodate a jaw-dropping size this like, it's well worth considering. These are SUPER hard to come by. On top of its size, this piece is sincerely gorgeous. A true work of art with every square inch filled with geometric elements. The rug itself has two minor patches and some ancient restoration on the fringe that isn't really a big deal. I tried to take some pics of them as references but they're really not too noticeable at all. Colors of this rug are deep navy field, with damn there every color under the sun and some nice neutral and browns around the border with beautiful abrash everywhere! I hope you love this rug as much as I do!
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.
