Product Information

An authentic and unique old Turkish Rug from the Balikesir Marmara region of north west Turkey. These Kelims are flatwoven in the flatweave Kilim technique with occasional cicim decorative embroidery (supplementary weft wrapping) of motifs and emblems. This hand-woven Kilim Rug from Turkey measures approximately 144x232cm (4.8½ x 7.7ft) - this is an original semi-antique with very unusual design, colours and pattern. We absolutely love the raspberry, pinks, purples and burgundy cicim weave against the dark background - it is really different!

Rugs and Kilims from this region are made by the descendants of the Turkoman Yoruks that settled in the outlying villages.  Whilst Balikesir is an agricultural and industrial region of north west Turkey, it is also famous for its dairies and stock breeding.  It has large plantations of vegetables, wheat and sunflowers as well as grapes and melons. Its is renowned for its olive based products and also a tourist destination for mounting walking. See more about Rug Motifs, Symbols & Meaning here.
