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.

... professional, pleasant, and helpful. Purchase was easy, and the follow-up from their sales department was exemplary. They kept me informed every step of the way, and communication was kind and personal. Cannot recommend them more! They have a selection of beautiful kilims that could satisfy just about anyone who wants a truly remarkable carpet.Michael Van BuskirkTucson, AZ

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!

This is my 6th(!) rug purchase from kilim.com (of vintage kilims) and as always the rug is lovely, the colors true, the value for the money very good and the service/shipping seamless. I strongly recommend giving their wide range of inventory a look. I will continue to shop with them until my last wood floor has an area rug!

It has been a joy and success buying several Kilims from the folks at Kilim.com! They went out of their way to send me ideas based on the color and size I was looking. And the rugs I received are stunning antiques - gorgeous - even more beautiful than the photos. I will definitely order more and have already referred numerous people who see my carpets and love them!

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!

This was my second purchase from Kilim

This was my second purchase from Kilim. I loved my first rug so much I had to get a second for another room. The photos with the crayons really helped give me a "true" feel for the color so I was even more excited when it came and was better in person.
