Turkish Kilim Rug, Malatya, Turkey  C.1920-1940 5’5”x 10’2”
This is a one of a kind Turkish kilim hand made by a village woman in the Malatya region of eastern Turkey in the first part of the twentieth century.  The design, unique to this area, is a repeating horizontal strip with triangular designs in reds, blues, and golds.  

The wool is hand spun and dyed with natural materials.  The piece was made on a loom in two pieces, which were later stitched together.  The size of the loom limits the width of the piece.  Village rugs are commonly made wider in this way.

In today’s world the two pieces can be easily separated without impacting the integrity of each, to create beautiful floor runners, table runners, bed cover, or wall hangings.  

The human quality and richness of this unique, beautiful textile will add warmth and grace to any room.
