Description

The oldest known hand-knotted rug was excavated in 1948 from a site in the Pazyryk Valley of the Altai Mountains in modern-day Siberia. It was discovered, frozen in the permafrost, in the tomb of the Prince of Altai. Radiocarbon dating revealed that the rug was woven in the 5th century BCE, making it approximately 2,500 years old. The advanced weaving techniques and the intricate design details show us the rich heritage and deep history of rug-making.


While the original Pazyryk rug is on display in the Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia, you can bring this timeless design into your home with a modern reproduction. This rug is the ultimate conversation-starter for your home.
