Imposing and magnificent, this antique Persian rug is a genuine treasure of the Orient and a paragon of the remarkable Sultanabad craftsmanship which has been honed from the early 18th century. Its vast body was meticulously hand-knotted of the finest wool in accordance with the traditional Persian technique which allowed this over 100 year-old floor covering to survive until this day in perfect condition. If properly maintained, the Sultanabad rug will serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear, pleasing the eyes with its gracious design. The main field of the carpet is occupied by an allover botanical pattern of stylized foliage and flowery vines concentrated around bold palmettes. This richness is enclosed within a series of borders kept in a similar vein, in which the main one exhibits further stylized foliage and palmette motifs interconnected by flowing flowering climbers. The color palette heavily relies on indigo – a color symbolizing afterlife – as well as beige and ivory – the two shades standing for purity and cleanness. This antique Persian Sultanabad rug will be an ideal complement to a wide variety of interior décors, from classic to contemporary. It will work best in ample spaces or as a part of a wall-to-wall arrangement.
