Welcome to our exclusive collection, where unique finds meet unrivaled quality. Introducing this unusual gem, a Donegal antique Oushak rug, a piece that exudes timeless elegance and unparalleled charm.
Imagine owning a piece of history – this Irish rug, dating back to circa 1920 has a distinct character with a wholly neutral color story. With only a couple of these Irish rugs available in our collection, this rug stands out from the crowd.
Crafted from heavy-weighted Donegal wool, it offers a luxurious lustrous texture, complemented by a looser weave. It has a very weighted feel to it (with 70 pounds of luxurious wool) and folds with softness like a weighted blanket due to the soft and fluffy texture of the coarse knots that make the wool more flexible. Note: The crease you see in the center is from the fold and will ease when styled.
Adorned with subtle two-tone art in the field, this rug is a dance of motifs and the borders are adorned with turtle motif elements with a warm and rich tone. Its earthy and peaceful vibe makes it an ideal choice for those seeking an old-world charm that harmonizes effortlessly with any space. This rug doesn't compete; it completes.
What truly sets this piece apart is its history – a special mark that adds to its allure. And when you step onto its soft surface, you'll instantly fall in love with the comforting sensation underfoot.
Originating from Donegal county, Ireland, ancient rug traditions had fallen under the influence of the industrial revolution, which in turn mechanized the process of rug weaving. With a soft wool foundation, it is highly recommended that a rug pad be used to help ground this fantastic rug.
