Behold this antique rug from Khotan, a city along the historic Silk Road, woven by artisans exposed to diverse cultures and regions, that created a tapestry that reflects a harmonious blend of artistic traditions. Embrace the understated elegance of this rug, where its muted nature, floppy handle, and worn appearance speak volumes about its age and character.
A perfect embodiment of shabby chic charm, this rug carries a folk art character that captures the imagination. Its large-scale boteh motifs create visual interest, while a diamond-poled center medallion anchors the composition with a touch of whimsy. The color palette of this remarkable piece exudes a mellow and soothing aura, offering a serene presence that can effortlessly enhance any interior. Its well-worn nature, bearing the marks of countless feet that have passed over it for over a century, adds to its well-loved aesthetic, unveiling the narrative of a richly lived life.
This rug embodies the traditions of its craft and it is a tightly woven rug, where this piece took several months to weave. The original dyes on this piece have been softened through a compound wash, lending a unique lightened hue that adds to its antique allure. While this distressed rug possesses a captivating presence, it is not recommended for high-traffic areas. Let this beauty’s muted elegance and folk art character weave tales of a bygone era, while infusing any space with an undeniable sense of charm and nostalgia. Will ship with a pad on the house to keep this little gem nice and snug.
