This gorgeous kilim from Black Sea region of Turkey is made with hemp and goat hair.
It is multi color and cream tweed. One half of one border has a significant amount of periwinkle in the tweed while certain places may have more of a darker color which is the color of fabric they incorporated into this and is not a flaw or discoloration. Very nicely done.
Made from cotton, wool, and pure hemp.
Very rough and durable in texture.
It is two pieces sewn together by the villagers as their looms were only a certain width which made it easier to take them with them as they traveled to cooler climates in the summertime.
Actual size is 6’6” x 9’11”
It has been professionally washed and restored.
Free shipping applies to lower 48 states only.
*Part of the beauty of these pieces is in their authenticity. They are not perfect in their shape or edges. They often have patches done by the weavers which we leave as it adds to the story of the rug. Some of them have apricot stains as they were often used to carry the fruit from orchard to home.This look is not for everybody. It will appeal to people who appreciate imperfection or wabi sabi...
