Description
Anatolian Hemp - Kelim - 372 cm - 185 cm
Hemp on hemp - Turkey - Early 20th century

Antique West Anatolian hemp kilim 1920s

Material: handwoven hemp Stripes: goat hair

Condition: in very good condition for its age, one corner is slightly damaged, I secured it myself with a hidden seam.

Seller's opinion: increasingly-rare-to-find semi antique West-Anatolian hemp kilim over-dyed with purple and an "SZ" shaped amulet against the evil eye, a unique piece. Ends and edges are secure, weighs 11.6 kg! and lies very well on the floor. This is the heaviest and most robust type of kilim that has ever been knotted. Hemp is 3 times more tear-resistant than cotton and is resistant to bacteria, germs and moths. The hemp kilim is softer than wool and cotton, almost like silk, you can recognise the shine of a kilim carpet!
