DEM0114-11Vintage Turkish Kilim | Flatweave
Colors: black, red, ice blue, sage green, white, brown, gold
Kilims are perhaps best described as the folk art of Turkey. The symbols and motifs used in weaving kilims are common amongst most weavers, but each tribal or regional group has their own way of interpreting those symbols. While many kilims are woven today for the commercial market, the same is not true of older kilim pieces. Until about 1975, the rug world was just not interested in kilims. Times have certainly changed! Kilims have made their way into the decor of the world, from palaces in the French countryside to the mountains of Colorado.
