In the southern region of the Caucasus Mountains, particularly within the Shirvan district, skilled weavers carefully wove a series of tribal rugs celebrated for their uniqueness and scarcity, given that they are no longer being made.
This antique Shirvan rug from the late 19th century stands out with its fantastic square-ish shape, rustic vibe, and great composition, featuring a classic ivory backdrop embellished with an intricate lattice design and crisp, small-scale motifs.
The shifts in vegetable dye colors in the wool create a lovely effect that will dazzle your eyes, particularly in the border, like a radiant sunset unfolding before your very eyes. The strong and bold border design includes a “kufesque” like pattern that really ties it all together perfectly.
The graphic pattern can bring a real punch to any space in need of some personality, like a kitchen, bathroom, or entryway. This beautiful rug is a real treat because it is a one-of-a-kind that speaks to the quality of the wool and the craftsmanship of the woman that wove this wonderful piece of floor art. Let this gorgeous rug bring the past into the present and grace your home with style, character, and sophistication.
Low pile, in good condition. Woven with vegetable dyed wool.
