About: This is SUCH a soulful and mystical rug. Every single thing from the design, to the colors and age - it's all there. Natural goat hair foundation, pure organic wool pile, all-natural dyes and incredible imagination of the weaver all come together to have this piece make us smile every time we see it. The abundance of trees and flowers, animals and birds, geometric pinwheels and stars and many other elements fill up this storybook as we could only imagine that the weaver loved her land and was inspired by her surroundings. Charming abrash at the top go from deep indigo to royal blue, lovely earthy saffrons and camel dress up this rug with nice warm tones and a midnight charcoal blue with soft beige and creams to soften it all. Plentiful pinks and madder root with earthy espresso and mocha give it a lovely touch as well. Nice floppy handle speaking to the common rugs of this village in the Southwest, and if in a high-traffic area we always recommend a pad for all rugs, especially ones of this age. This is the kind of rug that just speaks to you when you look at it; lots of good energy. The numerous tree of life motifs grow like a forest in this rug with the entire village surroundings. True nomadic art, you'll love this 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.
