Use these beautiful weavings in smaller places beside the bed or in from of doorways or small tables . I also like them as small table runners or on top of a chest. This beautiful handwoven Yastik uses a rare sumak technique to create a textured look.The natural dyes in this piece are subtle and excellent quality. Originally made for a young nomadic womans dowry as a long bolster cushion to use in the tent the motifs and designs on this represent female power and strength as well as abundace and fertility. This piece is in perfect condition .

What People Say - 


Fabulous Collection

One of the most fascinating,entertaining and educational carpet experiences I've ever had.Ruth has a fabulous collection of rugs and kilims and it's clear that she loves them all. She knows the story behind each one and enthusiastically shares the background about the weaver and the meaning of the work.

Ruth is very welcoming and there was never any pressure to buy.

I did take home a couple of lovely pieces and I will definitely return.  I highly recommend her shop !
