Afshar nomads hand wove this beautiful wool on wool antique rug. It comes from a Persian tribal group that is known for their unique aesthetic and craftsmanship and Afshar rugs we cherish today hold up their legacy. This gem is from circa 1880 and it was woven with all natural, vegetable dyes.
It is low pile and floppy. The ground color of this rug is deep indigo blue/midnight blue. It has a low pile on field and exceptional composition of geometric art. On one side of the rug around the center field, you can see the weaver left 3 marks of human element and on the other side, you'll see the "pinwheels of life" as they call it.
This rug is sensational and offers loads of history and amazing wool and quality. Afshar rugs are collectables, due to the scarcity of its kind.
