This is an old village rug, hand knotted by tribal weavers, the famous Qashqai tribe.
Woven circa 1880, the geometric design feautres triple diamond medallions in its field. The weavers included much shmbolism in the rug, including animal elements, fish and pineheels of life, which undoubtedly symbolizes to us the weaver's story, community and history.
This is a wool on wool foundation rug, naturally dyed with vegetables, roots and plant resources. This is definitely a hard wearing rug that is durable and displays immense character, showing off its beautiful age. It would look great on a hard wood floor as well as on stone. The strength in its earthy and natural color ways is soothing and bold at the same time.
It is a low pile, but a thick rug with old world wool you can truly feel, and it has a great size for styling. It will bring immediate charm and history to a space in the home or office and is very fairly priced for a great piece of history.
We recommend a rug pad for this piece and can custom cut one for you if you like.
