"Rare, Old Horsehair Prayer Rug, 97 Cm X 138 Cm, Anatolia, Turkey, Early 20th Century,"
Here is a funny kilim, woven with a combination of horsehair for the weft and cotton thread for the decoration.
This very beautiful and luminous antique carpet from Anatolia offers us no less than fourteen colors for the decoration of its mihrab, its field and its border.
There are Tyrian pink, orange, curry, yellow, copper, black, white, purple, almond green, pink, mauve, pale blue, red and lime green, fascinating colors, like a piece of contemporary art.
A carpet that can delight a collector or a museum, because I have not yet seen this type of work, a rarity !.
The back is long haired like a submak, long hair fringes at one end and a kilim finish at the other. In two words: a superb collector's kilim.
The kilim is a woolen rug, woven in a low slick, an artisanal product specific to nomadic Muslim peoples, in particular from Anatolia, Iran and the Caucasus.
The kilim, also spelled klim or kélim (a word of Turkish origin), is a carpet devoid of velvet because it is embroidered instead of being knotted. The kilim is made in various cities of Anatolia and Iran. Its name, which comes from the Persian gelim, is used to designate a woolen rug with a flat point found mainly in the Near East, the Caucasus as well as in Central Asia and which saw the light of day nearly 10 years ago. 000 years!
Kilims have their meaning.
They emanate a strong identity retracing the memory of the sedentary, nomadic and semi-nomadic peoples who make them. A style, an identity characterizes a tribe, a village: fiery or sober colors, complex or refined patterns depending on the region.
The patterns correspond to an ancestral symbolic writing inherited from shamanist beliefs.
The geometry of the patterns and their ethnic tone characterize their DNA.
The kilim was originally used as an interior stole, a blanket or a carpet protecting the floors of mosques and yurts. .
Normal but very light wear, see photos! This rug has been professionally cleaned and environmentally friendly.
Dimensions: Width: 97 cm (38 ") x Length: 138 cm (54") and with the fringes: 154 cm (59 ").
