Flat-weave (kilim): goat hair
A very large tribal flat-weave from Southeastern Turkey, woven with goat hair in natural tones of dark brown and ivory, in addition to orange, pink and blue. A kilim like this would have been used as a utilitarian, everyday floor cover in the weaver's household. Despite its humble origins, this is a very appealing piece with authentic simplicity.
