This gorgeous antique 1900s Persian rug from the Hamadan region in Persia was woven by a woman in the village of Bibikabad. The village name translates to "The grandmother village", pointing to how old it is and the long weaving tradition. With an allover Herati design, also known as mahi or fish design, surrounding a creamy antique ivory ground pole medallion as the central point, this awesome rug will be easy to style and can handle high traffic areas, so feel free to style it at an entry point if you wish.
The small scale intricate pattern in baby blue, rose red and rust, and a mellow yellow stands out against the moody navy blue ground creating a pleasing effect that will compliment most décor. The ivory border with wonderful floral art and pops of olive green rose red, and baby blue frames and ties it all together.
Handwoven with wool that was dyed using organic resources, such as flowers, plants, and vegetables, this rug has beautifully aged like fine wine. It has great character and fully intact, while the edges of the rugs have the most wear. The rug is nicely weighted and has a really great handle to the wool of the rug. This beauty has a lot to offer and will bring character, style, and a soulful presence to any space it calls home.
