VINTAGE ANATOLIAN KILIM IN RED + GOLD 3'10" X 7'7"
The directional center and intricate motifs on this long Vintage Anatolian Kilim aren't the only interesting elements of this tribal work of art: bold base colors and striking pops of color throughout make this a uniquely wonderful flatweave. Notice the oranges, lavenders, blue-greys and browns. Pair with one of our kilim pillows.
History of This Design: Kilims represent an important and widespread tradition in rug weaving, as they are commonly produced in villages and by nomadic tribes. Their motifs are determined by the individual weaver and often produced by memory, giving each kilim a unique character that reflects the tastes and perspective of individual artisans. Because of the manner in which they are woven, kilims contain geometric and rectilinear patterns — the tight curvilinear floral motifs found in many hand-knotted rugs cannot be produced with this technique.
