The mamara region of Belikesir is known for very finely woven kilims and large format textured cicim kilims with stripes of rich colours and detailed repeat cicim motifs. ‘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 womens’ marriage dowry. The symbols used on all kilims have special meanings and can reflect the weavers desire for protection, abundance, happiness, fertility, etcThey are generally excellent quality and long lasting


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.
