This is a beautiful nomadic vintage Kilim in excellent condition. This piece has a beautiful subtelty and with random colour and design changes that are typical of nomadic weavings .

The Turkish Taurus yoruks lead a semi nomadic life, consequently their weavings are strong both in design and substance,.Kilims continue to be woven in this area today however, primarily for use in the weavers homes.The bold serrated diamond shaped medallions found in Mut kilims use contrasting colours such as dark brown, white and red, and a little blue and yellow, are used to full effect, highlighting thie prominent design elements. Older kilims generally have a more mellow colour palette of red, pink, brown, blue and yellow.

The Yoruks of Mut not only produce kilims, but large numbers of cicims (those with asymetric designs are used as a tent door cover),as well as grainsacks(chuval),cushions (yastiks) and wildly decorated donkey bags.

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 !
