Description Oriental carpets feature numerous patters and designs, making them an extremely diverse group. Among all Oriental rugs, Samarkand carpets stand out thanks to their beauty. Traditionally produced using the asymmetric Persian knot, Samarkand rugs are famous for their great quality . Nowadays Samarkand rugs are considered to be a luxury and are widely beloved by carpet connoisseurs.

This stunning vintage rug was woven in the mid 20th century, circa 1948. Made of the best quality fibers, this Samarkand rug is both durable and beautiful. It boasts a complex pattern, undoubtedly inspired by traditional Middle Asian craft. It depicts a complex geometric composition with a medallion in the middle. The whole is surrounded by a richly decorated frame, containing both geometric and floral decorations. The weaver used vivacious shades of pink, yellow, violet, gren and black in the rug’s palette, creating a very original and surprisingly modern composition.
