Hand knotted in wool originating circa 1910-1920, this antique runner hails from a select line made in Iraq—one of the only pieces in our collection hailing from this region. Paying homage to Morocaan runner patterns, this play of high pile and all-over diamond medallion patterns brings out the marriage of shag texture with the arresting, bold play of red, orange, and gray-black colorway hues, all washed and sunned with meticulous care to achieve this look both unique and classic. Connoisseurs will note the unique variation of dye in the fringes on the vertical borders, further lending to the appealing sense of movement complementing the length of this 3×10 runner with a sense of character and whimsy. Interior designers will note the subtle variations in red and red-orange hues between the diamond pattern, further lending the same sense of character and departure from monotony to the tribal pattern in a skillful, lively way. A welcome addition to the Antique & Vintage rug collection from Rug & Kilim.
