Antique Rugs and Kilims are rugs that were made 100+ years ago. These rugs were made by nomadic tribes, in villages, and in cities. These rugs come from all areas of the rug-making Orient regions of Old and New Persia/ Iran, the Iranian and Russian Caucasuses, Turkey, Turkmenistan, Afghanistan, India and China, These rugs are notable and prized for so many reasons:the colors, the dyes, the wool, the skill, and their rarity.

In these antique pieces, one sees aged colors from organic dyes which required the skill of a master dyer; hand-spun and hand-dyed wool; woven structures that reflect the ethnic-cultural region and origins of the tribe. The designs are tribal or village based that reflect the type of knot, weave, and the design used by that tribe whose skill is passed on from mother to daughter from generation to generation.
