    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. Afsar are a tribal group originating from Iran who weave extremely fine slitweave kilims of a distinctive type within the Kayseri region. 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 markets.

    Please 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 asymmetrical 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.
