This is a gorgeous, Greek folk linen item, made in the early seventies in the area of Soufli.This is a Greek town, famous for its silk fabrics and decorative linen, scarves, etc, lying on the Greek-Turkish border, in the area of Evros.

In the seventies it was a must for all moms, catering for the future households of their kids and the dowries they were preparing, to always include some Soufli silks, runners, rotundas and other sorts of house linen.This here runner is such an item, coming straight out of our folk tradition, made with loving care and first quality silk and linen in the early seventies.

It measures 162c, or 1.62 meters in length and 37cm in width ( 63.77 x 14.56 '' ).It is very light and in very good condition, except one or two spots where the gold thread has been pulled out a little.It has seen very little use.
This kind of silk runner used to grace Greek dinner tables in the seventies and eighties and would always be crumbled in the middle or folded, its ends splaying out, in a long, fan shape.

Please, take care at cleaning and washing.Wash with cold water and a mild soap or mild,liquid detergent and do not tumble dry, if you can.If you have to tumble dry, do it at the lowest possible speed.Dry on a flat surface, on a towel.You can always use it unironed, since its best look is to look a bit ruffled and crumbled.Iron with warm, not hot iron, having covered the runner with an old, clean towel or sheet.

This listing is for the silk beige, vintage runner only.
