VINTAGE ANATOLIAN KILIM IN RED + GREY 4' X 6'3"
This vintage Anatolian kilim has a playful border and common Turkish "scorpion" style tribal motifs. The bold red center elongates this kilim to bring some directionality to your space. Blacks and Greens playfully interact with the bold red and grey pallet.
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.
