A beautiful Kurdish Lori tribal runner from the Kordestan Province of Iran that borders Iraq and is west of Tehran. This rug, circa 1960s, features very fine knotting, and is a perfect example of weaving at its best. It is in excellent condition with medium pile featuring a bright red ground with accents of navy blue and gold.
The Kurds procure 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. No two of these rugs are the same.
