This gorgeous kilim from Black Sea region of Turkey is made with pure organic hemp..this is a 4 piece kilim sewn together with rope like stitching. There are handmade patches, some made of fabric by the villagers and a few very small places where red fabric was woven in...it often has a nappy texture throughout. Very nice..very old.
Pure hemp is cool to the touch and underfoot and is a great choice in warmer climates.
Actual size is 7’5” x 8’4”
It has been professionally washed, blocked 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 grain sacks originally used to carry the fruit from orchard to home. This look is not for everybody. It will appeal to people who appreciate authenticity, imperfection or wabi sabi...
