Name: OMBRE SUNSET HUES - Antique Persian Khamseh | Floppy Luxurious Textile
Size: 6.11 x 9.6
Age: Antique C. 1940's
Pile: Low with age-related patina and ancient expert restoration in a few minor spots (see pics). Amazing old character-rich piece
About: WOW this piece defies all barriers! From color palette to the tension between strong geometric and approachable rounded scalloped shapes - this piece is an all-around gem! Muted blush, dusty apricot, charcoal and smokey blue-black inndigo, tons of kaki, walnut, and coffee hues, antique beige, seafoam, sunflower yellows, and so much more! Wool pile and wool foundation makes it nice and floppy - make sure to buy the custom cut pad with it (and all these southwest pieces) as it's best practice. I'd recomend using this in a somehwat lower-traffic area if you can. It's not the end of the world if you don't, but these are thinner so just be mindful!
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.
