About: A true nomadic BEAUTY woven in the Southwest mountains of the greatest rug weaving country in the world. Incredible and unique smokey-charcoal black/blue with eggplant, saffrons, blues, beige, army greens, subtle plum, smokey teals, and more! It is a truly remarkable color palette. One of the sides of the borders has been muted down a bit more, adding a bit of charm to an already soulful and awfully charming piece. The natural goat hair foundation speaks to its nomadic nature, and the iconic and forever botanical geometric flowers throughout add such a nice aesthetic draw. The multi-sized patterns and filler motifs both inside the medallions and surrounding it add nice round shapes to the contrast of it's stronger bolder lines creating the medallions and even in the corners and up the sides with the structure of the verticle rows running up the piece. This contrast is so lovely and shows us these artists knew that we humans are naturally drawn towards contrast and opposite - after all, the many ancient philosophies always pointed towards the balance of dark and light, up and down, good and bad, and the countless other examples of the importance of balance. This piece speaks to all of that on many different levels us and shows us what tribal weaving is all about. This piece has a nice floppy handle with a nice plush wool pile that isn't too high or too low. It's just a fantastic piece all the way around, you will love it!
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.

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.
