About: This is the KING of the Northwest - why? Because this village usually does not weave this large of a rug, let alone this unique larger room-sized dimensions with the extra 6" in width; but, it is all about the weave... This is next-level quality from a true tribal / village rug. These are finer than many city rugs - which basically just means the amount of time, dedication, commitment, and SKILL that it took to weave this piece is beyond a lot. A large-scale Mother-Medallion surrounded by dancing and growing geometric vines and flora - all speaking to the rug's primitive roots. Sensationally detailed border with an array of soft to deep blues, softened with antique beige and warmed up with strawberry and salmon with some crisp yet muted apple hues as well. If you are really looking for a tried and true, iconic, one-of-one, rare size/condition/fineness combo - look no further - you will LOVE this 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.
