These runners are woven by Afghan tribes people from the Kundoz region of North Eastern Afghanistan. Whilst the knot density of such rugs is no more than medium the use of local wools for both the pile and the foundation ensure that these rugs are both hard wearing and durable.
The design features a typical small ghul (sometimes referred to as elephant's footprint) design with many concentric borders. Colours are typically warm, deep reds with designs picked out in either black or extremely dark blue. This particular rug has an unusual additional colour in the ghuls, i.e. cream.
This tribal runner measures 6 feet 7 inches long by 2 feet 8 inches wide ( 2.00 x 0.80 metres ).
