Very old geometric village runner from the Sarab region in Northwest Iran. This borders Azerbaijan and the Shirvan carpet production region.
This is a very traditional Sarabi motif.
This runner is dense and heavy — ideal for high foot traffic areas in a hall or near an entrance.
Good overall condition with quite a bit of general wear on the wool pile. The cotton fringes and side cords are in very good condition.
Despite the normal wear from decades of use, the rug is VERY solid and perfect for a high foot traffic area.
Last photo with silver dollar shows the backside.
Sarab rugs are extremely well made and very durable.
Exact size is 10 ft. 10 in. by 3 ft. 3 in. Very heavy for its size.
Wool woven onto cotton warp. 1950s.
This is a traditional design going back well into the 19th century and earlier. The tan brown primary field areas are usually un-dyed wool, often camel wool.
Shipping for this rug will be $43 within the continental U.S.
