About: Absolutely incredible Elephant track runner with beautiful colors. Deep navy is the base that grounds all of the earthy browns, deep saffron, teal-green, madder root, warm reds, beige, and so many more hues. Nomadic animals spontaneously are woven throughout speaking to it's tribal and village charm. Wool pile on wool foundation also speaking to its' age and remote origin. This piece has a small tear (see the last pic) but it has been secured, we are going to patch this with the best matching rug we have so it will be secured and not really noticeable - it's going to be great! This is a stellar piece!!

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.

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. For this pad, we will combine two pads because it is so long. We do this all the time for longer rugs that exceed 12 feet long because that is the maximum length of the rolls of pads we have.

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.
