Green Wool Runner

Green Wool Runner

185.00

100% wool with cotton warp and embroidery

98 x 28 inches

This emerald green runner is woven tightly to produce a continuous texture with border and symbolism embroidered in thin threads. With this technique the cotton warp is invisible and shows only on the ends.

In addition to hallways and bedsides, runners can make great conversation pieces serving as cloths on a long table.

This is a flatweave handwoven rug featuring motifs unique to the Jewish Berbers in Morocco. Traditionally these rugs were not used as a decorative element but as capes, blankets and bedcovers in the cold mountains in winter.

The embroidery on this rug was carefully stitched on after the weaving was finished. This technique is in contrast to most other styles in which the decorations are woven directly into the rug.

  • This rug comes from a small family cooperative in Chefchaouen, Morocco that sells handwoven textiles.
