A beautiful Kurdish Lori tribal runner circa 1960 in excellent condition from the Kordestan Province of Iran that borders Iraq and is West of Tehran. It is 4.1 x 11.5 and all wool, including the foundation of the warp and weft so the fringe is a beautiful grey wool, unlike the cotton fringe of most rugs. The Kurds get their wool from their own sheep, dye it in small pots, and the women spin and weave it into rugs using just their memory of traditional designs and colors of their tribe. These weavers incorporate into the design small animals, household items, and other elements that they are familiar with, which you can see charmingly dotted throughout this rug. This is one of a kind.
RugNet only sells hand-knotted new, vintage and antique rugs in excellent condition. All rugs are shipped free of charge. There is no sales tax for customers outside of Virginia.
