Fragment I - Vintage Belouch Rug

| /

ORIGIN: 1900's Persian Belouch Rug Fragment


DESCRIPTION: This handmade rug fragment is over 100 years old. Its vegetable-dyed wool field features primitive flower design, surrounded by 8-pointed stars. These stars signify the common-held belief among nomadic tribes that, ‘wisdom is the greatest form of wealth’.

All rugs in the Passerine Fragments collection have been framed with quality and durability in mind. The frame is solid stained wood and features a museum-grade UV-filtering plexiglass to reduce risk of damage from shipping or prolonged sun exposure.  Each fragment was hand-stitched to its acid-free linen backing.
