Villagers and nomads have long used kilims for both essentials and comforts. They made these rugs from the elements they could find in nature, such as wool and hair from their animals, dyes from whatever source was available, and looms made from bushes and trees.
Kilims served as rugs, bags, straps, bands, and tent walls. They were used to contain personal possessions, tie bags to animals during migration, secure tents, and transport food and clothing. Kilims were also often used to divide men's and women's quarters in tents.
Our collection features limited edition kilims from the late 1950s to the year 1990. These kilims are known for their vibrant colors and intricate patterns. They are also relatively rare, as many of them were made for personal use and not for commercial sale.
The flatweave in this collection is over thirty years old, and the organic vegetable dyes used in these kilims have slowly oxidized, resulting in muted color tones and stunning color variations throughout the pile. The high-quality local wool used in the construction is densely woven and soft to touch.
We have chosen kilims from the following regions:
Turkish Azari kilims: They are known for their fine quality and their use of traditional motifs with their intricate geometric patterns and their use of bright colours. They are typically made from wool.
