Description:

For a contemporary look with abstract appeal, this aqua over-dyed area rug is skillfully crafted by the revitalization of a genuine hand knotted vintage Turkish rug woven in the 60s or 70s. Woven with wool on cotton foundation, this "distressed" rug measures 5' 3" x 8' 5" (63" x 101"). The process in creating these works of art begins by shearing to lower the pile and to help "distress" them. They then undergo a series of processes to remove the color. They are now ready to be dyed in one color, a stage that can be repeated several times to reach the desired saturation level and hues that complement and contrast the old. In addition to being unique and hand-knotted, these rugs make a very special statement about bridging generations of artisanal skill and knowledge over time. This magnificent transformation can be considered a piece of contemporary art, with a unique look that complements any modern décor.

Lovely rug, great value

Very happy with my purchase. The rug is just as described, with good quality workmanship. It’s great value for money. The communication from Kilim was prompt and responsive, and the delivery time a very impressive five days to my door from the other side of the world.

Just received our rug and it is beautiful

Just received our rug, and it is beautiful. Just as pictured online, and fast shipping?!?! Let's say the day before the rug was in the Netherlands, the next day in Seattle fast. Got here before my rug pad from Overstock. This company is great, and when we need more rugs (we are redecorating our whole house), I will buy from Kilim.com
