Wide & Long, Stripes & Bands, Plain & Simple
A lovely old flat-weave from Central Turkey, in the characteristic wide runner format, made by the weaver for utilitarian domestic use. The seemingly random spacing and colors of the stripes have a wonderful rhythm that takes time to appreciate. The kilim is woven with angora (mohair), instead of wool, and has great texture and sheen.
