5'9 x 8' Antique Persian Shiraz Rug #1221-A

Regular price $0.01

A moody, tribal rug featuring animals and nature throughout with grounding and earthy color ways. The nomads who wove this rug belonged to the south of Persia, where this wool rug was woven over a century ago in the region of Shiraz.

This is a wool on wool foundation rug, naturally dyed with vegetables, roots and plant resources. This rug has a short wool pile with scattered wear and it has a wonderful, floppy handle. 

These tribe members who produced this piece lived with a life of struggle and hardship and had an intensely close community. One woman of the tribe would go from loom to loom, of her own and of her neighbors, to weave. Another woman of the tribe would go gather plants and berries, to create the dyes needed for their wool. There was a societal structure, bond and order to how these primitive people lived together, with spirit and understanding. 

All natural, vegetable dyed wool. Woven circa 1880-1900. You'll definitely want to consider a rug pad to go with this old beauty and if you'd like, you can order one here at BPR and we'll custom cut the pad to the exact shape of this handwoven piece.
