Need length? This one has you covered. Dressed in dark navy blue and rust vibes, awesome Harshang crab in the field, along with fish, centipede design and more, this tribal runner has a lot going on!
The wool is superior and this runner has a great wool pile, woven circa 1920. It is heavy duty with scattered wear and will be able to take on a good deal of foot traffic and abuse. Please note, this is a handwoven and old runner and the width varies slightly throughout, as you can see in the overall shots. It's an all natural effect of women on the loom as they wove for several months during different climate and seasons.
The Harshang crab design you see is also definitely something amazing in art and also in value and meaning. The crab motifs are attractive and actually symbolic across many cultures. They say crabs represent renewal and rebirth due to the fact that they are able to shed their old shell and generate a new one. It is meaningful to us now as it was to the weavers back then.
Just a note, this rug has a mate so if you need another runner for perhaps a long hallway that needs coverage with continuity and style, check out runner #2191ML which has 10 feet of length. If the pair are a magical duo for you, please message as we'll work out a sweeter deal to see them travel to their new home and stay together.
