  •  Malatya is an eastern Turkish town  encircled by the high peaks of the eastern Taurus Mountains, and has a high Kurdish population. This has been a prolific weaving area for many years.Considering the number of large and small kilims, yastiks (cushion covers), and cuval's (grain sacks) woven in this region there is a suprising similarity of design, making Malatya kilims distinctive and easily recognizable. All weavings have fine lustrous wool and typically use a colour palette of rich red,dark navy blue,brown and some green to contrast with undyed natural wool or white cotton. Cicim brocading is often used to highlight motifs symbolic of earlier nomadic lifestyles and in general antıque Malatya kilims are extremely sophisticated in their use of colour and design harmony.
