  • This kilim is part of a magnificent larger kilim that unfortunately had been stained .The kilim was so beautiful with such magnificently clean colours that we have selvedged this  gorgeous section as a very useable kilim 

This bold graphically designed kilim is so easy to live with and would be a highlight in any room as a floor piece or a wall hanging. The colors are earthy and beautifully toned and very easy on the eye

 

The eastern Turkish Kurds as a group include many excellent kilim and cicim weavings from Gaziantep, Adiyaman, Malatya and Urfa and surrounding areas. These wevings are no longer madeand these groups are predominately settled in cities but many older weavings  include many unique examples woven bythese  nomadic kurds  for a young womans marriage dowry.

Utilitarian weavings were woven using handspun wool of excellent quality and sometimes goat hair and are surpringly sophisticated in skill and colour quality and generally have an excellent reputation on international markets.
