Turkish Anatolian antique kilim (397 x 172cm)


397 x 172 cm  //  13ft x 5ft 8"

This kilim was made in the traditional Anatolian manner of two joined twin parts woven from a narrow loom, possibly by a semi nomadic pastoralist group. Judging from the use of cotton and cochineal dye, the piece would have originated from the Adana region of southern Turkey - the group known collectively as either Rashwan or Reyhanli. The kilim has been used as a hanging tapestry evidenced from the brass curtain hoops attached verso and is therefore preserved in almost perfect condition.
