These unique, handmade carpet runners were made in the town of Galaxidi, Greece in the late 1960s by a young mother named Maria for her daughter's bridal trousseau. For reasons now forgotten they were never used by the new bride and have been stored by her mother ever since. Now in her 70s Maria has decided that it's time to part with these beautiful memories and hopes they will find a nice home. Greek carpet of this type (handmade, tightly-woven, kourelou-style) are becoming extinct and hard to find due to the loss of skilled craftmakers. Each of these exquisite pieces are a one-of-a-kind item to be enjoyed for many years to come.
