This soumak runner was handwoven in the Caucasus during the first quarter of the 20th century.
Handwoven in soumak construction it features a repeat geometric pattern in rich jewel tones of reds, pinks, blues, greens, and yellow with accents of ivory and brown.

The distinctive running dog border is well documented in Seychour rugs of the Northeast Caucasus where Russia and Azerbaijan meet. In a rare hard-to-find runner size.
