With superbly aged dyes that are subdued, this Kerman Lavar has incredible history and patina. Woven in the 1880s and in a square-ish size, this P E R S I A N is one of the most recognizable rugs woven in the south-eastern pocket of the country because they have very distinct floral art and tightly woven wool to their pieces.
The fluer design is as significant as its muted and natural dyes on this piece...you can think of this rug as a beautiful tapestry. It is a masterpiece of a P E R S I A N and we're proud to have it in the collection and offer it as immense value vs brick and mortar pricing. It has a gorgeous central medallion, ultra wide borders with several bands and very articulate and detailed art woven. Please see the details of the exquisite abrash (variation of natural dyes and different lots of wool used to weave).
Fun facts: Marco Polo was one of the first westerners to make these particular rugs known and Europeans have loved to collect and decorate with them.
Low pile and woven in the 1880s with all natural, vegetable dyed wool. Please note, this rug is handwoven and not perfectly straight along one edge, which is completely norm for a rug of this age.
