Name: Benny

Size: 3.10 x 11.3

Age: Antique

Pile: Low

About: Never again will we come across something SO unusual. The intricate and symbolic design of the field is so charming as it's filled with nomadic animal motifs and tribal "boteh" motifs. The geometric zig-zag design in the border layered with the iconic "fence" design in the outer border is truly special. The fence is woven in the rug to protect the rug from negativity - similar to the Turkish Evil eye as it wards off the unwanted. Deep earthy charcoal, various shades of browns, tangerine, teals, beige, deep blue and even abrash with deep purple hues find their way in this piece somehow. All-natural wool pile with wool foundation speaking to its nomadic charm and the nice corse knots add depth and texture to this piece. This is a very earthy and rugged piece that is both playful and beautiful. VERY attractive and unique piece! 

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.
