Blue Persian Hosseinabad Runner *

* This rug is an example of what I offer. Please enquire about current stock to see availability”.

16’9″ x 2’8″ / 5.10 x .82 –  Many other rug sizes and runners are available. THE best value long runner on the market today.

Handmade wool Hosseinabad runners are the best value in today’s market. Yet another weaving village in the Hamadan area of NW Iran, these spectacularly long runners, as well as the many rug sizes, are made with a soft lustrous wool pile on a cotton base. They use the ‘Herati’ motif in repeating rows to make a mass of colour and design that is somehow not overwhelming. The usual colours are red, blue, cream and greens which often have a beautiful depth and combined with the soft wool imparts a feeling of luxury far beyond their price point. Underfoot as well as visually they are warm rugs and are fantastic value for money, much more so than any other rug on the market. However, they should be used with a good non-slip underlay as they are not rigid rugs and can ruck up and bend out of a straight line. Handmade wool Hosseinabad rugs and runners can be easily cleaned and the initially bright colours mellow with age. They are not the hardest wearing of rugs but this is reflected in the price. Expect to replace every 20-30 years if used in a busy area.

Hosseinabad rugs and runners are made in a large variety of sizes but not the oversize grouping.

This typical example gives the perfect colours and design to expect. Red ground and cream rugs are also made, with red being the most common main ground colour.

Please use your rug with a suitable underlay which will protect the back of the knots and allow dirt to fall through the rug. Vacuum sparingly, once a week is sufficient, and do so on a low power and without the rotating brush, as this strips the pile. Clean professionally at least once every five years. Turn your rug every year if possible to even out footfall patterns and sun fading. Never leave your rug undisturbed under furniture in the dark. Keep a moth trap in the room if possible.
