Vintage Kurdish Herki Kilim Runner Rug - a fabulous vintage flatweave tribal Kilim from the Kurdish heartland of Eastern Turkey. This long narrow piece is woven in wool in the soumak flat-weave technique and measures measures approx 84x209cm (2.9 x 6.10ft) excluding any tassels (with the tassels its 231cm long in total) a useful size for a hallway, corridor or narrow space. This is a really unique piece, we don't get these very often and it has a lovely tribal quality - wonky and not straight!! This piece also has a repair but it is not easy to see to the untrained eye - see the photo. See more about Rug Motifs, Symbols & Meaning here.
Herki Kurds are actually part of a much greater Kurdish population. The Kurds are made up of a number of clans, tribes, and tribal confederations, many of which have been in existence for thousands of years. These rugs come from the southern part of the Hakkari mountains and are normally woven in long wide sizes, often they have small borders and large dramatic medallions running through the centre and also all over patterns. These are great substantial solid rugs that will last many years! Typically these hallway corridor rugs would have wool warps and wefts, they use good strong wool that takes dyeing well - made to last with lots of charm and character!
