(High-Decorative) Sharp clarity of design and a resonant palette of electrifying, saturated hues lend eye-catching distinction to this first-rate Persian Karaja runner. A sophisticated interplay between angular medallions, exceptionally nuanced botanical field motifs, and strikingly bold serrated leaf borders reveal the rare artistic maturity. The unusual sharpness of its lines attest to an unusually fine weave and superb craftsmanship of its village weavers. Undulating waves of intentional color striation, known as abrash, animate the luminous azure borders, providing even greater energy to this dynamic art-level Persian runner. Heavy pile and an extremely strong construction are further allures. Learn About This Rug Type
