Turkish Kilim Navy Blue, Ivory, Carmine and Burgundy Wool Rug BB6404 5'3" × 10'5" $10,000
Lovely and elegant at the same time, this antique kilim shows the sublime taste and technical finesse of Turkish vintage rug craftsmanship. Although made almost 80 years ago, the antique carpet is distinguished by impeccable condition, as if it just came out of agile hands of a skilled artisan.
The incredible state of this flat-woven textile was indeed provided by the masterful execution in accordance with old and refined weaving techniques and the application of the first-rate wool, dyed with natural tints only. Such an exceptional quality complements the mesmerizing design, boasting a wide array of vivid colors and an interesting selection of traditional motifs, saturated with meaning. The main field of this weaving beauty is occupied by an allover pattern of diamonds issuing tiny crosses – both being a symbol of protection against the Evil Eye.
This protective message is repeated in the series of equally engaging borders, especially in the main one where the situation reverses and the crosses constitute the major design, carrying small diamonds within and at the sides. Despite the many hues, the color palette is utterly balanced and harmonious, combining profound navy blue and ivory with azure, carmine, burgundy and touches of camel. This charming Turkish kilim rug will be a perfect addition to any modern household, offering its timeless appeal and recherché vibe.
