A 3×7 runner from the Burano Collection by Rug & Kilim, recapturing classic inspirations like that of this classic Tibetan Tiger rug in the antique pictorial rug style. Hand-knotted in notably soft Ghazni wool and a proprietary blend of yarns in this cultured, iconic look from the history of hand-knotted Oriental rugs, further enjoying a rare size well suited to hallways, entryways, and long rug projects.
On the Design and Symbolism: The regal pictorial design is captured in a distinct, rich and bold play of beige-brown and black against the warm orange-brown background, exemplary of the marriage of comfort and richness the Burano Collection enjoys. In and beyond India where this particular Tiger rug style emerged in the mid century rug market, Tigers are an important cultural symbol of power and even nobility depending on the hand-knotted rug culture of origin among the style’s varied interpretations. The almost hyperbole of representation in this style in these comfortable transitional rug colorways speaks to its versatility in neutral spaces and gravity centers in the home alike. Even as a transitional rug, the traditional element or even tribal attitude visible in this piece further attests to that versatility in design application.
