Small Tribal Rug / 4x6 Antique Chi Chi Rug #3175

Regular price $1,050.00

This Chi Chi rug boasts a rich history, intricately woven by tribal members in the Caucasus, just north of Persia. Originating from the 1880s, it holds a narrative of symbolic artwork deeply meaningful to the mountain weavers who crafted it. Distinguished by a slightly narrower field compared to the norm, this rug is adorned with several border bands that gracefully embrace its design.

Crafted with meticulous care, the rug features a 100% wool pile and foundation, both woven with vegetable-dyed wool. Its texture and handle exhibit a beautiful quality, and considering its age, it remains in decent shape, attesting to the durability of Chi Chi rugs.

Chi Chi rugs are renowned for their intricate geometric patterns, vibrant color palettes, and the preservation of cultural stories within their designs. They serve as not just floor coverings but as captivating pieces of art that bridge the gap between tradition and contemporary aesthetics. The uniqueness of each Chi Chi rug lies in its ability to reflect the heritage of the Caucasus region while adding warmth and character to any space they adorn. 

In the realm of antique rugs, the 8-pointed star motif that we see in this rug holds a special significance. Revered for its symbolic meaning, the octagonal star often represents balance, harmony, and cosmic order. Woven into the intricate designs of these rugs, the 8-pointed star serves as a timeless emblem, reflecting cultural and spiritual significance across various traditions. Just such a celestial symbol that adds another touch of mystique and cultural depth to antique rugs, creating pieces that transcend mere aesthetics and tell stories woven with threads of tradition and meaning.

Given its handwoven nature, you can see the rug is not perfectly straight on one side, adding to its authenticity and emphasizing the skilled craftsmanship poured into every fiber.
