Late 19th century Kurdish runner 3'3" x 14'8" / 100 x 448cm

The Kurds were a nomadic group spread roughly around South Eastern Turkey, Western Iran and North East Iraq, and they were famed for their brightly coloured weavings from saturated natural dyes and for using very shiny, glossy wool. This runner, woven by Persian Kurds, continues in that tradition. A border the colour of emeralds contains a field of alternating medallions in yellow and red on a mid blue ground. A cheering and very decorative runner.

Occasionally I also do a home trial, numerous factors can vastly change how a piece looks and feels in a room. Get in touch for more information
