A design steeped in the Arts and Crafts movement that dates back to the late 1800s, this classic Afghan Arts and Crafts Runner is a piece of quality craftsmanship and timeless design. The runner uses shapes that are reflective of nature, with decorative fronds, flowers and palmettes flowing throughout the runner. The designs of William Morris are an important influence here.
The darker, soft abrashed grey ground colour woven through this Afghan runner complements the pale creams, golds and blues used to highlight the design. These pale tones, in combination with a darker tone, add an understated elegance to this piece.
Natural vegetable dyes have been used to colour the fine sheeps’ wool of this Afghan Arts and Crafts Runner. It was hand knotted by master weavers and is of excellent quality and durability. The dark grey ground colour makes it more suitable for high traffic areas.
The runner’s all-over design and muted tones mean it complements a wide range of interiors without challenging other patterns in a space featuring bolder traditional elements. The defined edges of the floral motifs also sit well in a more modern setting, making the runner a versatile choice.
