Mid-20th Century Turkish Chocolate Brown Handmade Wool Kilim Rug BB6909 5'10" × 15'10" $8,000
Kilims are probably the oldest of all rug types which have remained in vogue since their first appearance in the history of human civilization. The antique kilim before your eyes is a pearl of the traditional Turkish craftsmanship made in the distinct mid-20th century aesthetics. It is less ornamental than classic oriental rugs but it features typical tribal motifs like Göz, believed to provide protection against the Evil Eye, Bereket, a symbol of fertility, or Bukaǧı – fetters that are supposed to bind lovers or families together. This powerful message is enclosed within a geometric cartouche. Everything is rendered in a toned and warm color palette of blue, rose, beige and chocolate against the brown background.
Thoroughly hand-made of high quality wool, this vintage rug distinguishes itself with exceptional durability which allowed it to survive until this day in perfect condition. If properly maintained, the flat-weave has a chance to serve its owners for generations without any signs of wear. Steeped in history yet well-balanced and strangely modern, this antique rug will easily match any kind of present-day décor, bringing in the never-passing recherché charm.
