About: THE MOST COLORFUL RUNNER ONLINE. There is no rug that comes close to touching this piece in terms of uniqueness in the color combination. Iconic Water Garden design grounded in deep navy, with a bag of Skittles woven all throughout this piece in the most tasteful, elegant, and charming way. It's not gaudy, rather sophisticated. It's not loud, rather playful. It's not commercial, rather so original that we know these weavers don't weave rugs with this many colors often- it's difficult, it's more time consuming, and it takes so much patience. Imagine switching balls of wool every few knots. Imagine trying to stay [loosely] consistent with the colors and design. So much work, so much soul, and there's no wonder why you can sense the energy this piece has when it's rolled out in front of you. It feeds your eyes, your soul, and speaks to everything there is to be said about sensational tribal runners. Lavender borders flank the soft antique beige true border, that all frame the deep navy field that organically switches to coffee color and back to the navy. Olive greens spring out into the petals of flowers, magenta, and deep saffron, and sunflower yellow pokes through like the sun in the morning time to really energize this piece. French, Peacock, and Midnight blues weave in and out cooling the rug down with their variations, and watermelon, salmon, blush, and apricot counter that coolness with their warmth. I must say, from all of our pieces we have only ever had one other runner to rival this size, color, and sheer beauty - that piece sold to a very niche space and client that saw what we saw - we know this piece will go to another space that will do it justice, and to a client that refuses to settle for the ordinary. If you're a designer that has a client or project that really does honor the unique, this is a wonderful piece if they can take this size. IMPOSSIBLE to ignore in size, colors, design, and story. You can't ask for anything more than that - 10/10 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.
