Antique Afshar Runner Rug
This Antique Afshar Runner Rug is one of the rare examples of camel hair weavings in a large room size format. Woven in Persia, circa 1880, this rug contains both camel hair and sheep wool, which gives the rug its aged appearance. The combination of different wools adds to the uniqueness and beautiful nature of the carpet.
The design is unusually sophisticated, featuring two fantastic central medallions woven in accents of red, blue and ivory. The border is a fantastic repeat pattern border and sits beautifully along side the geometric central design.
Constructed with hand-spun wool which has been dyed with organic dyeing techniques, used for generations. Woven on looms by master weavers with traditional hand-knotting techniques that make this piece durable and so suitable for any high traffic area.
Style this piece in a classic country home or a contemporary crisp interior for an instant accent accessory. Suitable for use as a bedroom runner, livingroom rug, hallway runner or entranceway runner rug.
