An old kilim from the Balkans, formerly part of the Ottoman Empire, where there is a centuries-old tradition of weaving large kilims. This particular type with its distinct design and color palette is attributed to present-day Macedonia. "Manastir" in Turkish, and "Monastiri" in Greek, are the old names of the Macedonian city of Bitola.
