About: Never again in our lives will we come across another runner like this. Every color under the sun fills this rug up with such charm and positivity. To add to its happiness, the design of this rug is the Seed of Life design; paisley or Boteh/Seed designs fill the center of the rug and pop off an incredible purple, blue, charcoal, earthy background color. This pattern represents birth, growth, fertility, and motherhood.  Rugs like this are very rare and woven with an artistic eye and symbolic intent.  Aside from the colors and the design - the size is very unusual. A wide European size gallery runner that is substantial for a beautiful open space, entryway, hallway, staircase, bedroom, or any other space that perhaps joins two rooms. This rug is in great condition for its age, subtle ancient repairs that aren't really noticeable at all, and both fringe have been secured by my grandfather!  

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.
