Emergency Care for Antique Persian Runner

rug and carpet runnerNormally, Antique Persian Runner is a rug in any size from about 2' x 5' to 3'+ x 20'+.  Antique Persian runners (rugs from the 1920's and 30's) were often wider, often wider even than 3'. It is not unusual to find an older Hamadan or Kurdish runner that has been reduced in width by having guard borders removed from the sides to make it fit in a space in an American home.

An Antique Persian Runner is a piled or flatwoven fabric hand-knotted in one of the traditional weaving areas of the Middle or Far East. Genuine Antique Persian Runner runners come from Afghanistan, China, India, Iran, Nepal, Pakistan, Tibet, Turkey, some of the southern territories of the old Soviet Union (like Azerbaijan or Armenia), Balkan countries like Romania and Albania, and some North African countries like Morocco and Egypt. A Genuine Oriental Antique Persian Runner is not made in Belgium or anywhere else in Western Europe or in the United States.  No genuine Oriental rugs are made of nylon or polypropylene.

Antique Persian Runner are either knotted with pile or woven without pile. Oriental Antique Persian Runner made by machine or any method other than hand knotting or hand weaving are not considered authentic oriental Antique Persian Runner.
