About: This is one of THE BEST pieces from this family hands down. Natural vegetable dyes, lovely use of shifts in color and of course there is a human element in this piece (and all of our pieces) that we look for in old rugs and this has it. What I mean by that is that the human element in anything made by hand are the nuances you find in the item or object that reminds you it was done by artists, humans, who either made decisions or imposed their choice in a specific part of the piece, or made a mistake, or by the spontaneous unfolding of dyes, wool, and accessibility - there are birthmarks and little moments in the rug that otherwise wouldn't have been there. An example would be if inside the light blue corner spandrels, you see a row of green knots - those green knots weren't "supposed" to be there, but maybe their child handed them a yarn of green wool during her weaving the blue and to appease her child she took the green and started weaving with it - this wouldn't have happened in that exact moment at that exact time had the child been sleeping, or had she had decided not to weave that day. These are the human elements, and this piece and every single rug in our collection is packed with them.
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.
