Vintage Malatya Runner Carpet / 3'10"x11'6"/ 118x351cm


Bold and beautiful vintage runner carpet from Malatya, famous for its apricots and its bold vibrant red-dark blue- apricot orange carpets.

These large carpets were not commercial carpets, but handmade carpets made by and for the people who used them, often part of a wedding dowry set.

This carpet has two lozenge fields with hanging lanterns from each end - four in total. Small triangle amulets give the used luck and protection. A warm apricot-orange slim border has geometric motifs mirroring the field.

Lightly distressed low-pile.
