Natural Dyed Runner
This hand knotted, wool rug on a cotton foundation was woven using hand spun wool and natural dyes in the northern Afghan/Pakistan border area.
It was chosen mainly for its pale, muted colours. The ground colour is a very delicate cream and the border is a slightly darker, almost golden colour. Some of the floral details are picked out in other colours including pale brown, copper, light green and blue.
This runner measures 5ft 9ins long by 2ft 2ins wide ( 1.76 x 0.65 metres).
