This one of a kind antique Persian Kazak rug was hand knotted in Iran over 1890s using 100% wool and vegetable dyes. It features a low, worn pile. There are areas of increased wear down to the foundation (white areas), but there are no holes or damage to the rug. Note that the rug has a more flexible (thinner) construction, thus a rug pad or anti slip pad is suggested to prevent movement of the rug. The rug has been professionally cleaned. Spot clean with soap and water as needed, or have the rug cleaned by a professional if necessary in the future.
