This subtle graphically designed kilim is so easy to live with and would be a highlight in any room as a floor piece or a wall hanging .It was originally woven by nomadic Kurds as a beautiful bag for grain storage and has been opened out for use on the floor .It has particularly rare colors withaubergine /purple/greens. 

The eastern Turkish Kurds as a group include many kilim and cicim weavings from surrounding areas and also include examples woven by nomads for a young womans marriage dowry.These kilims/cicims are characterized by restrained color combinations and use of earth tones (soft yellow,terracotta and browns)They also feature a medium weave with geometrical and hexagonal tribal motifs symbolising protection

''My kilims arrived yesterday ...and to say I love them would be an understatement !! I absolutely adore them both and am so thrilled.They are so much more stunning in the flesh and they look perfect in situ.

 I just think it’s incredible that I’m bringing kilim beauties home to Australia from your online shop
