Antique Flat weave Turkish Runner
Antique Flat weave Turkish Runner Description:
This circa-1930 vintage flat weave Turkish antique rug features elegant striations in shades of brown and beige, and a fringe on the ends of the kilim. It is modern and unique, a bold statement in minimalism. A flat weave refers to a type of weave created from vertical (weft) and horizontal (warp) interlocked threads and is a feature of a number of oriental styles of carpets. Turkish carpet design integrates different strands of traditions. Specific elements of the Turkish kilim design are closely related to the history of Turkic peoples and their interaction with surrounding cultures, in their central Asian origin as well as during their migration, and in Anatolia itself. A runner rug, this piece is part of traditional weaving of rugs specifically for narrow spaces, with weaving centers adapting their age old designs to suit this specific format.
