Antique Kilim Rug
Antique Kilim Rug Description:
This circa-1930 antique Kilim rug features a bold stepped lozenge field of alternating hues of dark blue, rust and beige. A geometrically patterned brown and beige border on both sides completes the look of the antique carpet. Kilim, a word of Turkish origin, refers to a pileless weave produced by one of several flat-weaving techniques that have a common or closely related heritage and are practiced in the geographical area that includes parts of Turkey (Anatolia and Thrace), North Africa, the Balkans, the Caucasus, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Central Asia and China. Kilim rugs are popular among collectors due to the different nature of their weave, as well as traditional value of a piece woven for indigenous use as opposed to rugs made on a strictly commercial basis. The authenticity of origin as well as the unique design of these rugs add to their value.
