This phenomenal Balkan kilim rug has been meticulously hand-crafted by interweaving multi-coloured wefts and warps and embellished with embroidered details, resulting in an ornate kilim that is rich in cultural history.
Kilim is a word of Turkish origin and refers to a flat tapestry-woven carpet or rug traditionally produced by nomadic people across the former Ottoman Empire. Balkan kilims come from an area that belonged to the Ottoman Empire from 1500, and historians believe that kilims actually originated in the Balkans and Middle East. Traditional Balkan rugs show Islamic influences as well as nomadic tribal traits.
Passionate about sourcing vintage textiles and preserving the folk art of nomadic people, this rug was specially selected on travels through Central Asia by a well-connected funky dude who’s business motto is 'good shit, good prices.'
This vintage piece is an incredibly rare find! It would make a spectacular addition to a living room floor adding rich ornamental texture to your home.
