Chinle / Nazlini Runner : Historic : GHT 2116

Don't you just love simple and beautiful detailing in a piece?However, first impressions can sometimes be deceiving.  Look at the beauty in the double borders - the red and black swallow-tail border nestled right next to the a brown and cream stair step border. One wouldn't think they would go together until you see them, and they work together perfectly.  

All of the colors in the borders are reflected in the diamond detailing a the points of each of the design points in the patterns of the piece, all which are floating gently on a cream background. This lovely runner was woven in the 1940s by a master weaver using hand-carded, hand-spun, and hand-dyed native wool.
