Let's talk about SOFTNESS. This tribal Kuba rug from the Caucasus is low pile, but has a great deal of floppiness and wool that is like mink to the touch! It features a simple and powerful trio of the 8 pointed star of wisdom. This motif represents a person's wish for self actualization, understanding and they say that King Soloman wore this symbol as a ring. It can be noted that the weavers lived with elemental lifestyle and simplicity, with great spirit while undergoing harsh climates and surroundings.
The natural dyes of this piece have aged well and it is in superb condition for its age. Woven circa 1900-1920. Low, wool pile on a wool foundation.
