Goçmen Kilims are often refered to as Moldovian kilims or Balkan Kilims as they were woven by Muslims in these regions since Ottoman Empire times.They were often traded in Turkey or sold by families that arrived in Turkey during the various Balkan wars.They are known for their very fine weave and very clear bold graphic designs and are one of the very few kilims that come in large sizes.
