DESCRIPTION: Camille is a camel-hair pile runner, knotted on a camelhair foundation. There are two nearly identical runners, available for purchase together or individually (price listed is per runner). The shorter runner's colors are slightly brighter and less worn than the other, likely from years spent in a sunnier location with more foot traffic. As is typical in these tribal designs, these runners feature a repeating diamond motif throughout the center of the rug, and an undyed camelhair border. The camelhair was often sheared from the rug weaver's own camel. Pattern, color variation, and signs of wear with vintage items is normal.
