Name: Two-Toned Blue/Blue
Antique Herati Design
Size: 3.5 x 4.11
About: Such a lovely piece. Attractive from top to bottom, and of course it is impossible to ignore the main attraction in this piece - the two-toned Sky to Navy blue abrash; all-natural, all impromptu, unplanned, and unfolded into this beauty that we see today. An unbelievable amount of greens, nice saffron, and muted buttery sunflower yellows, nice deep mocha meets espresso browns, and hints of antique beige to highlight motifs like stars in the sky. A true tribal rug with nice tight knots and patterns that is dressed up with lovely colors and symbolism. This piece is an all-over pattern of the iconic Herati fish, and as old Folklore has it - these two fish are swimming around the world looking for one another. Where else will you find an antique rug filled with stories told around campfires way back in the day!? Symbolism and beauty combined with natural dyes in a story-filled textile - this is what antique rugs are all about. This piece has some wonderful patina and an ancient old repair that adds even more charm. If you're into the old and beautiful, you will LOVE this piece.
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, ancient old repairs/touch-ups, 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.
