pure wool

This beautiful and unusual semi pastel Manastir kilim is ideal as a small hallway runner or can be used beside the bed or along the end of the bed . This size is also excellent for dividing spaces and creating a different look.This piece features random changes in colour and design which is typical of nomadic work .

Manastır kilims are very different to other Anatolian flatweavs as they were woven by Balkan expatriates who settled far north western Turkey. The region is particularly well known for its finely handspun wool and the compositional design features a serrated diamond shape which is repeated over the whole field of the kilim. These kilims are generally finely coloured with reds, pinks blues, yellow,green and black, and are of a splitweave onr very fine wool warps, producing fine quality weaving.Very little weaving is produced in the modern day making the old and antique kilims highly sought after.

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 !
