About: ONE OF THE BEST RUNNERS WE'VE EVER HAD - A very old piece with lots of incredible stories to tell! Magenta to strawberry, Tons of Camel, Indigo, Ice & French Blue, smokey charcoal, and even EXOTIC GREENS with amazing animals and people subjects woven inside!! UNREAL! This piece seems to have been re-sized but it's hard to say because it's either so masterfully done or it is age-related wear. Anyone that knows rugs that see this runner laying in your space will flip out, it is a true show-stopper. I can tell you of all the runners I have ever seen IN MY LIFE - this is without a doubt top 3 of all time. The weavers have woven their fellow villagers and/or family in the rug, there are mystical creatures that look like camels and/or dragons, and the way in which the branches are woven in the border is in a style that you see in Kufic writing that resembles the ancient form of calligraphy - is there a secret meaning to the border that we don't know?! Maybe, maybe not - but definitely, the motifs and symbols inside the rug have symbolism that we know ancient weavers wove into their rugs as this was their personal dairy in many ways. Great body, a wonderful handle, and soft yet strong wool that will last. This is one of those pieces that you can sit and look at with happy eyes, as you will find pleasant surprises each time you look at it. There hasn't been a runner that has moved me like this in a very long time 💜 I hope it speaks to you as well!
This rug is one-of-a-kind, only one in the world, no others are available.
Because of the nature and age of these older/antique handmade pieces - irregularities, ancient old repairs/touch-ups, 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.
