We carry authentic Antique rugs and Vintage rugs that are truly one of a kind made all by hand with organic dyes and natural hand-spun wool. These mystical pieces have all been professionally cleaned prior to being listed and ready to use. Our entire collection is carefully curated with an extremely picky and discerning eye that captures the heart and soul of these weavers, and the story they share in their nomadic masterpieces.
Name: Allen Size: 3.7 x 6.6
Pile: Low with lovely age related patina
About: Really a beautiful and genuinely worn antique Turkish piece. Dazzling colors of pinks and blues with earthy shades against a very handsome red hue. You'll find orange and salmon, with French and lake blues, and even the perfect use of antique beige with smokey charcoal that not only adds a nice thin frame but insinuates the rest of the colors. 3 and a half Medallion design giving us the lack of symmetry we secretly love, and the stylized Ram horns that poke out from them all. You have to love the amazing abrash throughout the piece, along with the nice zig-zag patterns that show up inside the medallions and around the border. These most likely are heavily influenced by the mountains, as these pieces are so nomadic and tribal. Worn and aged to perfection, the wool foundation gives this piece a nice floppy handle and all in all the rug itself is just a gorgeous example of what a distinct piece is. It will add warmth, charm, history, and a hell of a statement yet with a subdued feel in your kitchen, entryway, bedroom, bathroom, or anywhere you can fit this lovely size. A VERY handsome 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 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.
