A design rich in the history of the Arts and Crafts era from the late 1800s, this traditional Afghan Arts and Crafts Runner is an example of excellent craftsmanship and classic design. The runner depicts shapes that are found in nature, with palmettes, fronds and flowers weaving their way through the piece. Arts and Crafts Runner designs take inspiration from those of William Morris.
The pale cream background colour that frames this Afghan runner accompanies the pastel greys, light golds and light blues used to depict the motifs. The paler tones in this piece give an understated and elegant feel.
Woven with fine sheeps’ wool, the Afghan Arts and Crafts Runner is coloured with natural dyes. Master weavers hand knotted this piece, and their skill in conjunction with the durability and sheen of the wool, make it very hard-wearing.
With an all-over design and soft colour palette, this runner complements many different interior styles without challenging those of a bolder nature. The crisp, fine edges of the motifs also blend well in a more contemporary setting, making this runner highly versatile.
