A Magnificent Abstract Rare Red Abrashed Antique Persian Mazandaran Flat Weave Kilim Rug, Origin: Persia, Circa / Date: Early 20th CenturyAntique rugs like this are the manifestation of the old saying – less is more. When we think of Persian rugs, we tend to conjure up metal images of intricate floral motifs and more refined classic and traditional Oriental patterns. But as you can see, abstract rugs that are more simplistic are very much within the repertoire of the area rugs weavers in Persia.

The kilim rugs from the northern Persian province of Mazandaran were mostly woven in panels as the weavers moved from place to place. These panels were later attached to create larger floor coverings. That is why you that this piece features as if a superb three-part composition. Here the panels are colored with intensive tomato red hues and sparse ivory streaks that fit a very modern, minimalist aesthetic. This marvelous flat-weave Persian Mazandaran kilim rug is an inadvertent exercise in color and the art of ornamentation. Abrashed rug color variations form a subtle pattern of brindled stripes that fade from hyper-saturated henna reds to fiery warm tones.

Powdery white streaks provide a pleasant stratified divergence reminiscent of a celebrated abstract painting or thin, wispy cirrus clouds that float high in the sky. From the rich colors to the abstract details and naturalistic gradations, this antique kilim rug is an extraordinary example of rustic minimalism that has much in common with works of high art displayed in modern museums and on gallery walls.

Rustic rugs like this, especially those that are more artistic, are such wonderful works of textile art. Those people who are looking to purchase area rugs and want something that is very different, something more like a true modern art piece, would be ecstatic to come across such a rare, artistic and beautifully sophisticated piece. While most people end up using them on the floor, others choose to showcase them as beautiful wall hanging tapestries. But, at the end of the day, regardless of how you choose to place this rug in your home, it is the kind of piece that enhance everything around it while giving the room a far more captivatingly sophisticate and artistic look and feel.
