This fine fragment, fashioned into a beautiful elongated runner, is believed to originate from a larger kilim, a customary practice in its creation. Woven meticulously with hand-spun wool and using natural dyes that retain their vibrant hues, as high-quality natural dyes should. The design incorporates traditional weaving patterns from the region, strategically spaced to allow for fluid movement.
Characterized by a fine weave, this piece is adorned with detailed borders at both ends, framing a plain ivory field. Its aesthetic appeal is not only timeless but also versatile, seamlessly complementing both traditional and modern furniture settings. Whether placed in a narrow corridor or utilized as a table runner, its beauty transcends various decor styles. Additionally, signs of old yet skilful restoration add to its allure, attesting to its lasting quality.
