Very heavy handmade runner from northern Iran. Dazzling colors across a dark field (nearly black), a central medallion and two wing medallions in navy blue, red lions, botehs (the figures that look like floating amoebas), and wide violet - rose borders. Stylized tree-of-life motifs. These rugs are believed to symbolize the royal Persian courts of antiquity. Lions, of course, are associated with Persian history and royal leadership.

Very good condition with minor wear. Woven by Kurdish or Azeri village weavers on a home loom. Sometimes sold as Bijar rugs-- which are dense, heavy rugs created by Kurdish weavers in western Iran. 1960s.

The boteh design originated in Kashmir, migrated into Persian rugs several centuries ago, and eventually was copied by the British textile industry to become known as Paisley (after the Scottish town where it was produced in large volumes). The boteh remains an important design element in many Persian rugs.

Exact size is 8 ft. 5 in. by 3 ft. 10 in. Natural wool woven onto cotton. Quite dense and heavy. Very good choice for high foot traffic area as it will not shift around as some carpets will if walked on vigorously.
