About: A true stunner - this is the epitome of eye candy.  You can't turn away from this piece.  So gorgeous from the powerful geometric flair to the color palette and abrash - it is all there.  Incredible watermelon pinks inside of a black-like blue border.  Where will you find that again?  They could have easily used the same strawberry color for the center medallion but they didn't, they took the time to dye another batch of another color to add that much more depth to the piece - this is real art and attention to detail - this is taking pride in your work.  Denim to ice blue pierces the corners of this piece, and all framed inside of an indigo-rich border with iconic Serapi turtle motifs.  This is symbolic alchemy and divine rug weaving.  We've seen this Heriz design everywhere, but when you get an authentic one, a genuinely old one, and a show-stoppingly rare unique color palette like this one - you just know there's something special going on.  More than just handsome - this piece is really one-of-one.  If it speaks to you in any way, don't hesitate for it's not only better in person, but you will feel her presence when you lay it in your space and it will grow on you more and more each time you see it.  Slender European size for this piece was woven for the Euro market rather than the West, but somehow it's here with us and will be a wonderful addition to a rug collector's collection, a design junkie's oasis, or simply a client with a discerning eye that has a knack for sifting through the noise.

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.
