Jijim with Subtle Colors and Design

6' x 10'5" (180cm x 313cm)
Turkey, Western Anatolia: Mid-20th Century
Flat-weave (kilim), "jijim" brocading technique: wool, goat hair
Medium, Kilims
The background in this old tribal flat-weave from Western Turkey is made of a mixture of cotton and goat hair, creating a heathered effect. This, combined with the subtle colors in Jijim brocading, make the rug appear as if it is very worn, when it is, in fact, in very good condition. A great looking floor cover.
