.Kayseri is a a large Central Anatolian city that sits at the eastern gateway to Cappadocia .Kayseri and the surrounding villages are considered very important weaving centres for both wool on cotton carpets, pure silk carpets, and slitweave Kilims. Typically these pure wool Kilims tend to be boldly geometric, often featuring a central medallion with smaller filler motifs,and generally have two main borders framing the central ground field. Many of the motifs are symbolic of the lifestyle of earlier nomadic groups that settled in Kayseri from the Eastern Torus Mountains. Kayseri kilims are both decorative and reasonably priced and therefore are very popular on todays marketsPlease note :All our store items are handmade.Our vintage pieces are all preloved and due to the age and/or handmade nature of these items, minor signs of patination,fading, wear, or slightly unsymmetrical lines may be present.These are not considered flaws,they are part of their unique nature and why we love using them in our homes as they add both character and charm.

What People Say - 

 

Fabulous Collection

One of the most fascinating,entertaining and educational carpet experiences I've ever had.Ruth has a fabulous collection of rugs and kilims and it's clear that she loves them all. She knows the story behind each one and enthusiastically shares the background about the weaver and the meaning of the work.

Ruth is very welcoming and there was never any pressure to buy.

I did take home a couple of lovely pieces and I will definitely return.  I highly recommend her shop !
