This vibrant and exceptional antique Kurdish runner is quite the masterpiece from a bygone era a century ago. Its remarkable size (exact measure is 3'3 x 12'6) is embodied with artistry. Meticulously hand-knotted by Kurdish weavers, a minority residing in the northern regions of Persia, this runner exudes the strength and solidity characteristic of Kurdish rugs.
What immediately catches the eye are the transformative natural dyes that tell a vivid story on the runner's backdrop, turning it into a mesmerizing work of art. The aged beauty of the rug is accentuated by remarkable abrash, showcasing a spectrum of colors including Indian red, firebrick, burnt umber, copper rose, and more. The borders boast an elegant palette featuring ivory pearl, rifle green, and Indian yellow, while additional hues such as pastel red, coral, espresso, and iced blue add depth and richness to the overall composition.
In impeccable condition, this heirloom from circa 1900 boasts a low wool pile and delicate paisley motifs that adorn its surface. The runner not only carries a sense of history but also a commanding presence, making it a versatile piece that effortlessly enhances any space. The intricate artistry and fluid movement captured in this Kurdish runner from a bygone era make it a seamless addition to your styling endeavors, embodying a timeless elegance that transcends the years. Handwoven with vegetable dyed wool.
