About: OH MY! One of my favorite runners in our entire collection. Stripes alllll the way down to the other end of this piece, adding structure and a masculine feel - but of course, it has those windy and whimsical vines throughout adding such a touch of class and a massively appealing artistic feel to it. I love how the movement inside the structure contrast from one another, and yet still somehow work so magically. Then of course, the colors. Where will you find this green? Where will you find this dusty salmon? How gorgeous is that denim and French blue? Deep charcoal highlights to ever so subtly ground the piece, only to be warmed up with the buffer caramel and camel color, soft antique beige, and then brought back to life when you note again the hundred variations of greens, salmon and blue combo! It's a circle of life inside a beautiful and meandering vine design navigating its way around delicate yet significant boteh motifs. The deep red border is one of the best reds I've seen, and the decorated and unusually nomadic bindings on the edges teleport us back into the villages these pieces were woven. This is a runner that comes from arguably some of the most artistic, and best weaving villages and regions on the face of the earth. And I wouldn't even argue it, it's true. And of course, like all pictures, they don't even do these rugs justice. But this is our best attempt to capture this beauty. You will absolutely look at this rug for hours. There aren't many pieces that can subconsciously arrest you with its structure and lure you in with its artistic charm. Then keep you under its seduction with these charming and playful colors. Wool pile and wool foundation speaking to its nomadic nature, and this piece has some nice age-related wear and patina. A. TRUE. GEM.

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.
