This little antique Persian rug, straight out of the late 19th century and woven by the Baluchi tribe, is like a tiny time-traveling artifact. Imagine a gathering of Baluchi nomads, with their tents covered in these amazing rugs, traversing vast landscapes. The rugs, small and travel-friendly, tell tales of their journey. Decorated with tribal motifs like the ram's horn, embodying strength, and the S-hook motif for warding off the evil eye, it's like a historical snapshot in wool. The earthy color palette adds to its charm - a patchwork of beige, reds, and blues, like a landscape map seen from above.
Sure, it's seen better days, battered and bruised from its life’s adventures, but its still got life and love to give. While it might not withstand a stampede, it's perfect for a cozy corner that doesn't see too much traffic.
Soft and floppy to the touch, and handwoven with 100% vegetable-dyed wool. So, if you're looking for a rug with a story, this Baluchi beauty is ready to deliver the goods. It will be shipped with a pad on the house to keep it nice and snug.
