£ 390.00

405 x 89cm / 13ft 4" x 2ft 11"

This antique kilim was originally one of a twin pair that originally would have been joined in the length and unifying the pattern with a surround border. The kilim has traces of cotton which betrays its origins to the semi nomadic pastoralist populations between Adana and Akseray in central southern Anatolian part of Turkey. The design may be derived from elebelinda / elibelinda  and carnation designs
There are a few faults and  holes in this antique kilim mostly seen in the photos herewith
