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 love my new runner

I love my new runner! It looks exactly like its picture, and it arrived very quickly. Plus I got a wonderful little gift of postcards with pictures of beautiful rugs, quotes from famous thinkers, and a lovely Turkish evil eye pendant for my home. The rug really completes the look I've been working on, and it feels great underfoot. I'll definitely shop here again. Thanks!

Fabulous experience

As a former furniture manufacturer and retailer, I have a lot of experience dealing with clients. This company is absolutely stellar, not only in customer service, but their presentation and website are incomparable.They've thought of everything to take the guess work out of online ordering--truly a twenty first century operation. Using Crayolas to reference colors is brilliant!

beautiful long kilim runner

I ordered a long runner, it came quickly, even more beautiful than the picture. Colors rich and workmanship excellent. I had a question about how to clean my rug when necessary and kilim.com responded well and immediately. I highly recommend them.

We are happy with our purchase!

We are happy with our purchase. The delivery was a bit detailed, but the communication was very transparant. So no problems! The colours on the rug were a bit less bright than on the picture, but it still looks beautiful in our home! Thank you, Kilim!
