Vintage Wool Runner Rug - Southwestern Grey, Green, Ivory Stripes - Handloomed - Boho Tribal Decor
And if you fall in love with the imagination, you understand that it is a free spirit. It will go anywhere and it can do anything. Alice Walker
Hand-loomed with the softest wool thread, this stylish vintage runner rug offers a host of decorating possibilities stuffed inside its 4 and a half foot frame. With its classic stripe and neutral color palette, it's perfect all around the room for a variety of purposes from table runner to area rug, window seat cover to wall swatch or even just whimsical decorative expression draped over your favorite armchair or southwestern style ladder display. A three diamond pattern adds a touch of boho spirit that easily and instantly blends common styles and colors found in cabins, cottages and minimalist decor. A true classic piece, it can be re-purposed again and again in fresh and innovative ways as your style and space evolves with your changing taste.
While there is no maker's mark to provide insight into a specific artisan, it is clear that whoever made this beauty certainly took time and care to produce an interesting and well made piece. Tight stitching, soft wool and artistic design make this a lovely and unique interior design element that will spark the imagination of any boho-loving spirit.
- Colors include emerald, ecru, ivory, pine and a blue grey that rests somewhere between the shades of sage and cloudy
- Fringed edges
In lovely vintage condition. The fabric holds its shape well and has a soft but firm fuzzy texture. There is one puled thread area on one edge that measures 1/2" inch in length and width. One very small slightly lightened color splotch on one side in the stripe area and one slightly yellowish color variation near the middle diamond pattern one side (it is difficult to determine on this one if it is part of the natural colors in the wool thread or the result of a little previous spilling adventure). Please see photos for specific detail on these marks.
The fringe on each end is also two different lengths. Please see size section for details.
The rug contains no odors. It is also easily washable by pre-soaking in cold water for 10 minutes and then soaked again in cold water with a tablespoon of mild detergent for another before rinsing clean (in cold water!) and left to hang dry for 24 hours out of direct sunlight.
Measures 54" inches in length (not including the fringe) or 60.5" inches length (with fringe) x 14.5" inches (width). The fringe on each side is two different length. One side measures 4.5" inches while the other measures 2.5" in inches in length.
