Description:

For a contemporary look with abstract appeal, this black 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 2' 7" x 10' (31 in. x 120 in.). 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.

Our go-to source for high quality kilims

We have now had three excellent buying experiences with Kilim.com over a span of two and a half years, so I think we're in a good position to recommend the business in the highest possible terms. Having been to Turkey and shopped for rugs the old-fashioned way, we find there's no contest: buying a kilim on Kilim.com is hands-down the way to go. The ability to search for a rug by size, age, and price is a tremendous advantage. The superb photographs and descriptions are a great aid in visualizing the rug in a new home. And the ease of the transaction can't be beat. See a rug; pay for it online; and, in a few days, the beautiful thing arrives at your doorstep. What could be easier? The staff at Kilim.com, in particular Ida Gurel, couldn't be more helpful or responsive. The email notices about special sales come at just the right intervals to remind us about this very special online store. In short, Kilim.com has become our go-to source for both vintage and modern kilims. Top marks!

Wonderful rug, Great shipping

Arrived in a few days!The kiln is beautiful, just like the picture. I can’t stop ordering from these guys. I’ve bought a half dozen rugs over time. I think I’ve got what I need, and then I see their new catalog and just can’t help myself.
