Kellehs, so-called gallery carpets, and long Turkish rugs are all considered to be wide runners rugantique rugs and carpets of a particularly elongated format that have been produced in many weaving centers around the world. Many of the earliest classical rugs were woven in this kelleh format because of the restriction imposed by narrow width looms. Earlyminiatures of Safavid, Mughal and Chinese court scenes often depict narrow carpets flanking each side of a main carpet, with a dais carpet at the top creating the configuration of a stage with an audience in attendance. Unusual shaped antique wide runners were frequently commissioned to fit into particular spaces and may be found in many attractive styles and colorations.
