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 5' 2" x 8' 8" (62 in. x 104 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.

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.

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!

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.

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.
