This beautiful Vibrabt kilim has excellent dyes and  would look stunning with a modern open decor or lighten any room .The central Anatolian region of Sivas, is inhabitated by Turkish and Kurdish people. Kurdish weaving continues a small scale though the Kurds well known sense of originally and vital expression has remained intact in todays weavings. Many prayer arch kilims come from here, as well as small kilims, large splitweaves and some decorative cicms.The designs of the large medallion kilims feature oblong central medallions, with many varied smaller filler motifs such as stars or ' wolf tracks' often surrounded by a leaf or vine pattern.

Colours are a lighter hue than other Kurdish weavings, particularly noticeable in the lustrous reds, softer greens, orange and yellow.Occassionally white cotton is used to highlight designs .The wool is lustrous and finely spun and the colors are always beautiful and clear.

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 !
