These beautiful kilims were made by young nomadic woman in the village of Cal outside Denizli in Western Turkey. They are known for their bold geometric designs and pastel tones as well as their reasonable prices. ‘Yoruks ‘or nomads and willage women predominately wove kilims and textured ‘cicim' kilims for their every day use in tents, or as bags for transport as well as for a young woman's marriage dowry. The symbols used on all kilims have special meanings and can reflect the weavers desire for protection, abundance, happiness, fertility, etc. They are generally excellent quality and long lasting. A kilim this size would take 2 months to weave.
Please note: 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.
