Handwoven by the nomadic Afshar tribe, this antique 1900s Persian rug has got a rich palette of earthy colors and charming paisley patterns, also known as the seeds of life. This beautiful rug's main field is a harmonious tapestry of paisley motifs, resembling an arrangement of ancient tiles, set against a charcoal background. It's as though you've been transported to another time with just one glance.
The border bands tell a story of their own, with mountain motifs that symbolize protection and the natural environment that inspired the weaver. This love worn rug, with its vegetable dyed wool and floppy handle, exudes a sense of warmth and history, as if it has absorbed the stories of those who have cherished it over time. A fabulous find for anyone who appreciates the beauty of antique textiles. Let it infuse your space with character and style.
