This is a 1920s antique scatter rug with a wonderful light plum ground color that is derived from all natural dyes woven by the Turkmen Salor tribe. These nomads used local resources to make their rugs, with wool from their herds. They used geometric art in their weavings exclusively and each tribe from this region produced rugs that were slightly varied in style and character. The octagonal shape in the central part of the rug is known as an elephant foot. Very symbolic. Other tribes from Turkmen that are famous for these rugs are the Yomut, Ersari and Tekke.
The wool pile of this rug is soft and luxurious. This rug is in great shape for its age and has a mended area up top that was stitched up to restore it. We acquired this from an Oregon collector who had about 2 dozen small and special pieces he collected over the decades.
We will send a rug pad on the house to keep this baby nice n snug. This can also be used as a wall hanging, or placed as a mat on a table or on the piano!
