About: Gorgeous antique rug for any home; whether you have lots of light, white, neutrals, greys, and linen tones; or you have heavy dark woods, leathers, and rich bronze and industrial beams - this piece is the rare chameleon type rug that will fit in any space it finds and in any generation - in other words, it's TIMELESS. The exotic and fiercely tribal border is anchored in the corners with the large stylized palmette, and accompanied by cousins of the same motif and look inside the french blue border. The field color is a deep deep watermelon berry red, with pops of cotton candy, bubble gum pink, slate blues, soft honey camels, and more. Incredible abrash, lots of interesting things to see in this carnival for the eyes. Tons of long branch and tree motifs, the rare pomegranate motifs, and the circle of life boteh motif with a tree growing inside of a seed - BEAUTIFUL and highly symbolic. Unusual size, colors and design make this rug a very special piece that will elevate any space; from living rooms to dining rooms, to bedrooms and offices - there is a mystical element you can't ignore once it's in your presence.
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.

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.
