This graphically designed delicately vintage kilim is so easy to live with and would be a highlight in any room as a wall hanging. The colors are earthy and beautifully toned and very easy on the eye.The white cotton field clearly has the remnants of silver thred that was used to decorate the finest of wedding kilims. 

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 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)


All our store items are handmade.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.
