Antique Souf Rug / 3'10 x 5'3 Rug #1301ML

Regular price $1,250.00

Woven with a very rare technique of dimensionality with a flat weave and piled combo taken to the rug, techniques within that can be seen and felt.  This is BPR’s first antique Persian Souf rug in the collection. The antique ivory wool ground is flat weave and the design of the rug was executed with a raised pile, a style that is not common or found in other rugs. This is a fine piece to cherish possessing exceptional form and artwork.

We suspect this rug is from the Afshar tribe and was woven circa 1900. It has paisleys within the field. This motif represents the idea of life and fertility. We attribute the paisley element in rugs as “seeds of life”. The nomads from Afshar, a region in southeast Persia have a great legacy and this one in Souf design is all the more valued as a beautiful collective to have. It can be used as a floor piece or as a wall hanging for a gorgeous backdrop in the home or office.
