This traditional Turkish Kilim is a semi-antique and is 70 to 80 years old. The piece is in great condition and the colouring from natural plant and vegetable dyes gives it a rustic look (the aged looked of natural dyes cannot be replicated in modern processes). The motiff’s are discreet and the variation between colours within the stripe and banner design give this piece an aged rustic look. This rug is a handmade village piece, the level of work and craftsmanship by the person making it would have been handed down through the generations therefore each kilim has a story to tell. If you wish to brighten up a room in your home or would like a piece of Turkish history as a decorative piece, then this rug is for you.
