This is a really cool, antique runner from the late 19th Century amazing art and character. This runner was hand knotted by Kurdish weavers, a very small minority in areas that are north of Persia. It has floral art in geometric form set across the entire field, on a navy backdrop.
What you may notice immediately is the sensational abrash that sweeps across the corner spandrel on one side of the runner, a very telling story and work of art on this old rug, and the colors are mesmerizing at that. This indicates the changes in the wool lots used that were cooked with all natural dyes, sourced from the tribes organic vegetables, plants, roots, flowers, etc.
This tribal runner packs history that we cherish and it is an heirloom in excellent condition that can be passed down generation after generation. It is purely wool with a low wool pile, wool warp, wool weft.
Handwoven with all natural, vegetable dyed wool. At an exceptional value for age, quality, art and condition.
