This runner is an exquisite antique reproduction of the traditional Sultanabad designs from the 17th to the 19th centuries, which were originally woven in Persia.
This masterpiece was woven in Egypt and utilizes the highest quality wool while combining a rust background, with a tobacco border color, in an allover floral motif. Sultanabad rugs have bold and floral designs, and their designs include classical medallion or overall designs of vine scrolls and palmettes. Traditionally, dark reds and blues were common colors with highlights of soft green and ivory.
Sultanabad rugs are beloved among many fine interior designers and art lovers for their marriage of causal motifs and superlative craftsmanship.
