These kilims are prized for their luxurious wool and beautiful colors, with older pieces characterized by restrained color combinations and use of earth tones (soft yellow, terracotta and browns)They also feature a fine to medium weave with geometrical and hexagonal tribal motifs that are either arranged in neat rows or staggered throughout the field.This is a beautiful example of a top quality Afyon weaving.
