About: STOP right there - this Antique Afghan Tekke piece is a Stunning Example of some of the best this village has to offer. This wool is nearly softer than velvet because of the incredible quality of wool these weavers use for their textiles. This is a luxurious piece, meaning it is floppy, with an incredible and yummy handle that can be thrown around like a blanket. Perfect for an office, bedroom or living space where hopefully you will indulge and take your socks off because your bare feet will love being on this rug. Some of the best color combinations I've ever seen - simple, soft, yet striking in a subtle way - muted plum, peacock blue-green, with tons of softer earthy pastel-like hues that elevate the rug in the most beautiful way. Make sure to order a pad as these thinner-bodied pieces always benefit from them, and even if you are layering on jute or sisal it is a good idea because our pads are lower profile so you'll get the benefit and still keep the layered look. You will LOVE this unique 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.
