DESCRIPTION: Turkish Sivas rugs are known to be effective mimics of popular Persian rug styles and designs. They offer an alternative with similar aesthetic and hand-made appeal, shaved pile (like Persian tabrizes), and are often an excellent value compared to similar Persian picks. This rug features a classic style found in city rugs like Persian tabrizes: a sweeping all-over garden design with flowers and vines, delicately depicted in taupe, brown, and tan against a soft cream background. Please note that the rug does feature roughly 8 inches of a slightly blue-tinted abrash running widthwise across the rug. This naturally-occurring color variation is a result of how some of the wool dye oxidized when antique wash was applied. Pattern, color variation, and signs of wear with vintage items is normal.
We recommend using rug pads to extend the life of all Passerine rugs. Add a custom-sized rug pad to your order using order add-on the drop down above.
