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.

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!

I love my 'new' rug

I love my 'new' rug. It is just what I expected from the photos. It was very helpful to have the rug photoshopped into my room so I could judge how it would look there. (I did know that it would fill more space than it was given in the photo, but that was fine.)Ordering this rug was easy and delivery was prompt. Thank you!

We were absolutely delighted with both the service and our new Kilim rug. The rug is even better than the picture (and it looked pretty sweet in the pic). And it was delivered very quickly. Loved the bookmarks, postcards and Evil Eye that came with the rug!

Superb product, superb service!

Our two newest rugs from Kilim Studio are beautiful! The kilim and the tulu arrived just as pictured: colors true to pics, in great condition (they're both vintage), clean, pressed, and ready to accent the rooms. Service, as always, is superb. Communication is quick and easy with this company. If you're looking for kilims and/or tulus, you won't be disappointed. Great quality, great selection, great service.
