'The Mother Earth Goddess' Kilim

'The Mother Earth Goddess' Kilim


Afyon Kilim - Turkey
Size:1.58 x 1.10
Age 70-80 yrs 
Perfect Condition 
 Kilims of the Afyon region in western Turkey are generally distinguished by finger-like protrusions that extend outwards from the geometric shapes employed in the designs. The name of this characteristic motif is parmakli which comes from the Turkish word parmak, or finger, so the design can be translated as “with fingers”. Parmakli, however, also suggests parmaklik, or fence, so perhaps, they may symbolize the high mountain ranges rising like barriers on the borders of the region.

This multiple niched Mother earth goddess design in this kilim is both striking and rare


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.
