The central North East Anatolian region of Adiyaman, is inhabitated by Turkish and Kurdish people. Even though, Kurdish weaving continues only on a small scale,the Kurds well known sense of originally and vital expression has remained intact in todays weavings. Many prayer arch kilims come from here, as well as small kilims, large splitweaves, rarer multipaneled cicim and kilim weaves and some decorative cicms.
Runners and some cicims pillows bags and grainsacks are all woven in fine slitweave technique in the Adiyaman area.Colours are a lighter hue than other Kurdish weavings, particularly noticeable in the lustrous reds, softer greens, orange and yellow. Occassionally white cotton is used to highlight designs The wool is lustrous and finely spun and the colors are always beautiful and clear.
