This vintage goat hair and wool kilim runner started out as a grain sacks (before the introduction of plastic) Now they have been turned into rugs. We can only find them in summertime as the mountains in the Black Sea region of Turkey is covered in snow in winter.
We professionally wash and restore each piece and sometimes we'll keep the original patches which we find endearing to its storied past.
The colors are dark brown goat hair tweeded together with subtle cream in wool. There are several tone on tone stripes going the length of the runner.
The villagers made a few hand sewn patches which we left intact. See photos.
There are variations in colors of goat hair which results in darker variations of color throughout. This is normal and indicative of a handmade piece.
Actual size is 3’7” x 15’6”
