Encircled by a Bergama border, the rug stands as a guardian of tales, flanked by an outer carnation meander guard border, tracing the edges of a nomadic odyssey. Rustic whispers meet refined elegance in every thread, as this vintage Persian hallway rug beckons with an irresistible charm—a living relic, a silent witness to the nomadic roots and dynamic personality of the Bakhtiari tribes. It's like a magic carpet, but without the whole flying thing. So, whether you're aiming to impress your guests or simply seeking a touch of laid-back luxury, this rugged beauty has got you covered.
