Vintage “pala” or “chaput” kilims, as they are known in Turkish, are flatweave rugs hand-made from unraveled fabrics of cotton and mixed fiber blends. Chaput weaving was an old tradition in Asia Minor (Turkey) born from the need to reuse old textiles, merging what was at hand into unique functional pieces of craftsmanship. Nomadic weavers usually used narrow looms and sewn together the panels to form a two, sometimes three winged reversible area rugs. Eco-friendly and creative, each chaput kilim is unique in its coloring and hues because fabrics were employed in their original colors. Traditionally, they come in striped or plain patterns in a very diverse color palette, which makes them easy to integrate into any classic or contemporary environment.
