About: What a FANTASTIC piece on all accords; an incredible in-between size that means it was most likely woven for the weaver or weavers themselves, or it was commissioned out to be woven at that specific size for a specific space - lovely! The size tells a story, but so does this iconic design that hails from the greatest rug weaving country on the planet, and in my opinion one of the top rug weaving villages in the world as well. The bold design is powerful, but it is all toned down with this sensational color palette. The soft dusty terracotta and blush, beautiful variations of soft and deep blues, with muted eggshell and antique beige, and more. The rug itself reads differently based on different lighting and whether you're looking into the pile or onto the pile (looking into the nap or on the surface of the nap). The wool used in these pieces is so good because the sheep in this region are happy and healthy sheep. The rug itself is a bear, nice thick body that will take any traffic for 100+ years to come. The rug in its entirety strikes a great balance between bolder design yet softer colors. Usually, you will see rich deep reds as the main color for this family of rugs - so it is a pleasant and beautiful surprise that we have this softer and mellow color. And yes, I've named this piece Amalfi because it reminds me of the coastal pictures I've seen of the Amalfi Italian coast. Incredible rocky terrain meets the beautiful blues with nice colors from the homes, lights, rooftops, beaches, and of course, the natural habitat that surrounds this beautiful scene. This piece has all that to me, and more!
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.
