Vivid and cheerful vintage geometric Hamadan village runner in very good overall condition.
Almost no signs of wear on the wool pile; the side cords and fringes are also in very good shape.
There is some bluish dye pickup in the upper left hand side and corner.
The carpet features a unidirectional tapestry of birds, deer, trees, and flowers on a red field. The border is primarily a dark blue.
You can purchase this rug directly off my website and I can either ship it to you or you can pick it up in person in the East Bay. Just do a search for "Dingo Gallery" using the quote marks and it should come up first on google, Bing, Duckduckgo, and Ecosia. Email me with any questions, please.
Some abrash in the red (abrash is color variegation due to changes in the wool dye batches).
The rug is solid and can be used in a high foot traffic area of the home. On a slippery floor a simply rug pad can help keep runners and small rugs in place.
This is a traditional village carpet woven by tribal weavers in central Iran, using local wool.

The Hamedan District is in north central Iran and produces a rich tapestry of rugs and carpets from several hundred villages. Most of these village rugs, typically woven in a home, are rendered as runners and small rugs.
