About: A delightful tribal runner with rich and attractive colors that will elevate any space it finds! Large medallions filled with rich and soft blues, deep teals, salmon, antique beige, and even charcoal blacks draw your eyes in against that wonderful rusty-marmalade-red field. The details in this rug are what are really special - apricot highlights and even coppery colors run down the sides as they introduce you to the iconic FENCE design woven around the perimeter of the rug - this fence design was woven by these mystical weavers to represent protection for the rug; keeping positivity on the rug and deflecting negativity. You'll note the intense abrash and shifts of colors from one dye lot to the next as all these pieces were woven with a small batch-dying process. You can't help but to appreciate the charm in the details in this rug. This, along with the fact that the rug is signed and dated, translating to about 76 years old. Beautiful tribal arrow motifs are woven inside this rug, along with other geometric tribal and village motifs, and meaningful elements and characteristics to the weavers themselves in the soft antique beige border. All in all, this is a FANTASTIC piece for high-traffic because the wool is incredible and the rug itself has a nice thick and plush body. You will LOVE this rug in a kitchen, back hallway, bedroom, front hallway, foyer, or really anywhere else you can think of to feed the soul, add some charm and character to the space, and have a wonderful piece woven by soulful artisans with love and imagination! Really a charming vintage runner!
This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one available. Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces, irregularities and age-related wear are likely to exist and are not considered defects.

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.
