Check out this enchanting 1910s Afghan runner! This antique treasure will take you on a wild carpet ride back to a time of tradition and soulful artistry. The intricate elephant track motif adorned with delightful 8-pointed stars, each whispering secrets of happiness and fertility against a mesmerizing brick red background will inspire the imagination.
What makes this rug truly exceptional is its gorgeous abrash – a unique shift in color thanks to a fresh batch of dyed wool, ensuring that each piece is a one-of-a-kind masterpiece. The dainty border bands, featuring the ever-charming paisley motif, add a touch of timeless whimsy.
The unexpected shocks of teal playfully scattered throughout, gives this antique runner a modern and vibrant twist. Handwoven with care using vegetable-dyed wool on a wool foundation, it boasts a low wool pile, making it the perfect addition to your hallway, entryway, or kitchen. Embrace the charm of yesteryear with this rug that tells a story as unique as your own!
