    Not only are Chinese Runners rare to the market, but to offer a pair is truly unusual. As opposed to the more common symmetrical or geometric motifs found on Chinese runners, those offered here are woven with an all over Art-Deco design with stylized floral vinery and a saturated magenta border.
