Motifs
  • The first weavers were nomadic, carrying their looms on their backs as they migrated with their flock. The resulting weaving was a narrow panel, which they’d join with other panels to create a multi-panel kilim. Each panel would vary in length, creating an occasional, charming asymmetry that will interact unexpectedly with furniture and add interest to your floor.
  • Stripes—a simple and timeless classic
  • Abrash adds visual depth and texture in its variation in color and tone
Region of Origin

Anatolia makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey. Rugs from this region are defined by their tribal and geometric designs—with plenty of symbols reflecting life from traditional households.

Material Details

This patchwork kilim is made up of many smaller hand-knotted kilims, originally woven from a blend of cotton, hemp, and wool. Rather than throw out damaged rugs, craftspeople salvaged undamaged pieces from each one, sewing them together onto a cotton backing to make a new piece of heritage quality.

  • We recommend that you regularly vacuum your rug to remove dirt and grime. Depending on how heavily your rug is used, just once or twice a month is adequate. Too much vacuuming can wear down the knots and fibers more quickly. If you have a suction attachment on your vacuum cleaner, use that instead of a rotary vacuum.
  • Every few months, you’ll also want to flip your rug over and vacuum the back to get the grit out of the foundation of the rug. It also helps to rotate your rug once a year to ensure even wear over time.
  • Every 3-5 years, we recommend getting your rug professionally hand-washed. Please do not take it to get steam or dry cleaned—this will almost certainly damage the rug! Hand-washing requires the use of a pH-balanced shampoo, worked into the rug by hand with a soft-bristled brush, before being rinsed thoroughly. This process should be repeated a few times.
  • In case of spills:
    • Blot the spill until it is dry, but do not add liquid. Consult an Oriental rug specialist immediately for cleaning. Adding liquid can make it harder to remove stains, and can even extend them further. This is because moisture travels along the fiber, so in rugs with horizontal fibers (like flatweaves), it can get trapped.
