Many weaving centers have produced carpet runners specifically for narrow spaces, adapting their age old designs to suit this specific format. Perhaps the most renowned weavers of vintage carpet runners were the Bidjar tribe of Northern Iran whose sturdy weavings withstand the wear and tear of stair treads and busy passageways. Superb antique runner shave been produced in the city workshops of Tabriz and Kirman, as well as in rural communities of Northwest Persia, and villages of both the Caucasus and rural Anatolia. Antique carpet runners are often utilized as a complement or a contrast to adjacent European Art Deco rugs, or as the transition linking two separate rooms.
