Large impressive handwoven Turkish kilim in superb condition.
A relatively contemporary textile as it does not appear to have been used much at all. The crease in the center is from being folded and stored — it will disappear once the kelim is used and walked on.
A bold range of colors with a dark navy blue field and salmon colored central medallions.
This kilim is woven from 100% natural wool and cotton.
Colors include dark blue, brick red, mint green, light blue, muted orange, and white.
Overall condition is excellent. Only very slight signs of wear and a couple of very, very faint small smudges in one of the medallions.
Exact size is 14 ft. 6 in. by 5 ft. 6 in.
This is a tribal kelim, a type of flat-weave textile, and not a typical pile rug. Since it is more supple than a rug, it is not ideal for any slippery floor with active foot traffic unless you put down a simple pad.
It would be ideal for covering and decorating a hard floor, and could be used for yoga, a children’s play mat, or quietly sitting and sipping tea.
It could even be mounted on the wall as a tapestry as it’s lighter than a pile rug.
Kilims are favored by nomadic tribal people because they are easier to fold and carry than pile rugs. They are placed on the ground and used to sit on, eat, and drink tea.
Shipping will be $34 within the continental U.S.
