Item:132815483237Magnificent Malayer - 1900s Antique Kurdish Runner - Persian Rug Size: 3.3 x 15.6 ft.Malayer rugs come from the city of Malayer. This city lies between Hamadan and Sarouk within Iran. Antique Malayer rugs were created by individual weavers during the 1800s and early 1900s for the most part. These rugs display uniqueness in the broad range of designs and choice of colors. They are true artistic creations, and their value reflects their artistry.The tribal weavers in Malayer were often Turkish, and they employed the Turkish knot, Gourde, to weave these creations. The Gourde is a symmetrical knot, as opposed to the asymmetrical knot of many traditionally Persian creations. Additionally, antique Malayer rugs regularly enjoy a low cut pile. Weavers trimmed the pile in order to enhance the appearance of the design. In addition to a broad range of design and color, these rugs were designed technically to enhance the artistry of the woven design. Antique Malayer rugs are hand-woven; however, their level of originality does not end with hand craftsmanship. The color and design are also incredibly unique, and the weaving technique is unusual for Persian rugs. The weavers of each rug highlighted the artistic nature of the tapestry, and the value of the artistry remains today. These rugs are highly valuable, especially considering the rising popularity of, and demand for, this type of Persian tapestry.Good condition! No stains, no odor. Sides and ends original.
