Midcentury Samarkand Purple and Yellow Handmade Wool Rug

$ 11,000
  • Description
    Over the centuries, Samarkand has brought to this world some of the most iconic rug designs, sought-after by collectors and aficionados of all countries. The famed weaving center is soaked with influences from various rug-making cultures which creates an exciting mix of colors and patterns on the surface of every genuine Samarkand carpet.

    The vintage Samarkand rug before your eyes reflects the best traditions of Oriental craft. Its magnificent field carries opulent geometric medallions and classic motifs such as Hac (cross), symbolizing protection against the Evil Eye, and Hayat A?ac? (Tree of Life) that expresses the wish for immortality, among others. The inner and outer borders are adorned with several detailed frames, each representing a traditional motif.

    The color palette is toned and faded, kept in subtle shades of taupe and beige with dusty purple. Woven according to traditional techniques and with the use of high-quality, natural materials, this pile rug is truly a work of art. It can be the centerpiece of any room, where the geometric transformations it contains will capture the attention of all and sundry.
