This is an antique village rug, hand knotted by tribal weavers of Shiraz, which happens to be home to the famous Qashqai tribe. It is from the late 19th Century rug and features a geometric design with diamond medallions in its field. The wool here is durable and woven with all vegetable dyes. The rug also sits on a wool foundation...check out those remarkable fringes.
If you look closely, you can see many animal elements in the rug, which is quite telling of the weaver's story. The strength in this earthy rug is quite evident and it's size is phenomenal and unordinary at nearly 6x7, which is rare in old rugs.
It is a low pile, but a thick rug with old world wool you can truly feel, and it has a great size for styling. It will bring immediate charm and history to a space in the home or office and is very fairly priced for a great piece of history.
