Description:

Vintage tulu rug hand-woven in the 60s in Turkey and in excellent condition. Tulu is basically a kilim or a plainweave with tufts of wool or goat-hair yarn interwoven using the Turkish knot to form tuft patterns on the underlying design. Tulu is the English pronunciation for the Turkish word, "tüylü" meaning hairy. The technique used for weaving is very similar to "gabbeh" in Iran, "Beni Ourain" rugs of Morrocco and "ryijy" in Finland. All have been produced for functional purposes rather than commercially and in mountainous regions, so they all have thick pile for protection against cold. Their weaving is more coarse so they can be woven faster at home that the sophisticated fine rugs that can only be woven from a pattern in workshops. They mostly had "primitive" designs and used undyed hand-spun wool or few colors.

I have placed several orders with Kilim.com and am always happy with their service, responsiveness, and product.

Looks perfect in our living room

Exactly what the picture showed. This rug is gorgeous with lively colors, yet the aged look of a vintage rug. Looks perfect in our living room. It was well packaged and arrived quickly. I am so happy with this purchase and hope to do business again! Very responsive customer service.

Wonderful carpet!

Remarkably easy to work with given we were half the world apart. Design process was facilitated by paint and crayon samples I could get locally to be sure of true colors.Finished product delivered as scheduled and is even better than I anticipated.Pricing was excellent, too

I ordered a vintage Kilim for my dining…

I ordered a vintage Kilim for my dining room and loved it SO much, that I ordered two custom rugs. Both rugs were made and delivered in a timely manner. The attention to detail, colors, quality of materials and customer service are beyond compare. I only wish I had more floor space so I could order more!
