EXOTIC Mystical Village Runner | Raw Camel Hair with Greens, Teal, Ice Blue & Aubergine | 3.2 x 12.3
**All of our Antique rugs and Vintage rugs have been cleaned and are ready to use!** Enjoy!
** This runner is tricky to photograph because it will read a little warmer in some pics and cooler/softer in others. The iPhone likes to overcompensate when there is low or high light in the area. So, to be safe, this piece is both - it has elements of lightness and coolness, and also a richer and warmer glow. If you are even considering this piece, don't let the colors lead you - you will love this runner in ANY space, I promise because it is just that good.

About: One of my ALL-TIME FAVORITE RUNNERS. I love anything camel hair because I think it speaks to the deepest part of our primal subconscious - camel hair represents raw, uncut, resilient, tough, and strong-willed characteristics. All of these you will find in the weavers themselves, and therefore in their pieces as well. When, however, we see raw camel hair vs raw sheep wool, camel hair does offer a bit more of a nomadic essence in my opinion. This, coupled with the exotic green, teal, peacock blue, and even purples you'll find in the geometric vines that grow right in front of your eyes inside of this runner - you will see right away that the lines depicted are meer shadows of almost hieroglyphs and that just deeply resonates with me. This is the epitome of true mystical art in a runner...
This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one in the world, no others are available.
Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces - irregularities, ancient old repairs/touch-ups, and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects.
Any questions about this rug? Don't hesitate to reach out!
We always recommend a high-quality custom cut pad for any and all rugs; these pads are made for hand-knotted rugs. They create a body and support the knots of the rug, as well as prevent it from slipping and sliding.
A note from us to you: Buying a rug is special; it's not just you finding the rug, but also the rug finding you. Think about the many coincidences that have to occur for you to find the rug of your dreams. Our rugs are woven by nomads in the villages and remote mountainous regions of the major rug weaving districts across the world. All of our rugs are genuinely old and one-of-a-kind. Like anything old and unique, they are filled with character, soul, and story. The story of a rug is something we think about a lot; who was the weaver(s)? Did they weave it for personal use, commerce, to gift, or trade? Who was the second owner, and the third!? Sometimes the little motifs and symbols in rugs can help tell the story, but we will never truly know - there's something beautiful about that. Alas, our joy is to curate these incredible pieces that speak to us, and to pass them along to their new owners to be enjoyed and cherished for many years to come; both continuing to add to the story of the rug, and to the story of the new owners.
