    I agree with cluttered! But it's also strange - a combination of flat weave and (possibly) hand tufted or at least tufted pile in some of the squares. I can't say I've ever seen one like this. I am seeing tufted pile where none exists?

    And you could call this a "runner."

    The other odd thing is the end with no fringe. Can we see a close up of that too, please?

    Colour scheme indicates India as country of origin. It doesnt look old.

    I've been searching for another rug with both flatweave and tufted/knotted pile without success. Even looked at several websites with detailed explanations of rug weaving techniques and saw no indication that both methods are used together in a single rug.

    The close up of the non-fringed end looks like it was knitted or crocheted off.

    I agree that it doesn't look particularly old.
