Vintage Turkish Kilim Rug
Vintage kilim from Black Sea region of Turkey is made with pure natural goat hair, hemp and wool.
This one is 3 pieces sewn together making one large area rug. Natural goat hair comes in various shades and intensities resulting in a gorgeous brown “tweed” mixed in with different colors of wool in the stripes and the white is hemp.
There is a hand sewn patch that we left intact which were done by the villagers. There are also symbols that were woven into it in a few places that normally represent prosperity and good health for their families. Circa 1970’s
