Kurdish Flat-Weave in Wool and Cotton

Buyer Protection Guaranteed

About

An unusual and highly graphic Kilim, attributed to the Kurdish people located in eastern Anatolia, woven with natural dark brown wool with accents of ivory cotton for the asymmetrically placed horizontal stripes.
Flat-weaves of this type have indeed helped in bridging the gap between the tribal weaving tradition and the quest for modernist art and design.
