About: If you are an artist or any sort, or simply appreciate good quality and unique piece of art - then you will love this soulful and funky village rug woven with an abundance of joy and pride. The entire rug is inspired by her environment. You will even see abstract landscape weaving inside the medallion of the rug; greens, yellows, beige, and red. You will see trees, barns, tents, birds, animals, birds, the phases of the moon, running water motif, mountains, and even a hybrid motif of the comb that signifies purity, and this motif in the rug is connected to a scenic piece of land which to me indicates it was a place that was very sacred to her, maybe her home even. Really a wonderful story rug that is jam-packed with folklore. You will also notice a strikingly beautiful band of TEAL abrash getting through the charcoal sky - pretty incredible. Each of the large flower motifs at the top and bottom of the rug has lavender plums, eggplant, teal, beige, and a few other colors - it is amazing to think how decorative just one flower of the rug is. You'll see spring greens and yellows all throughout with the best purple you can ask for! Along with that, half of the rug is denim blue and the other half is a nice charcoal black in the field. SENSATIONAL village rug for the heart, eyes, and soul!
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.
