Dazzling large village runner from Hamadan District of Iran. This is a traditional Mazlaghan ‘lightning’ motif — serrated gold lightning enclosing red medallions, black fields, and creating a vibrant geometric design.

The rug has quite a bit of abrash (variation in color due to different wool dye batches) — which creates muted areas as well as bold zones on the rug.

Wool on cotton warp & weft. Excellent overall condition with only minor wear. No holes, stains, or issues. Incredible art for your floor! Ready to use. This rug has a dense weave and can handle foot traffic. 1970s.

Very good size at 12 ft. 6 in. by 4 ft. Mazlaghan rugs are a personal favorite, but they are generally on the small side (3 by 5 feet or 4 by 6). Not easy to find a good-sized runner like this one.

Price is $385. Shipping is $43 or free pickup.
