About: WOW. Where are you going to find a 20-foot runner with creamy-ivory-beige ground and pops of tangerine and slate blues? Or even the pistachio meets earthy mocha-colored border? This runner is an incredible example of true art woven with precision, love, and commitment. Imagine the size of the loom for this rug to be woven! We believe this rug was commissioned to be woven for a wealthy home way back in the day. The all-over design adds a nice soft but noticeable openness to the rug allowing the rug to lighten up space freely. Wonderfully grounded with the border color, and filled with these sensational stylized floral boteh/seed/paisley motifs that are decorated and detailed in each square inch. Unusually narrow for this long of a runner, and all in all this piece is an absolute STUNNER that no one will be able to ignore! You will LOVE this 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.

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.
