One of a Kind village made Turkish Kilim Rug from the environs of a town called Esme, in Turkey's Western Usak Province - this piece is woven in the flat slit-weave technique and a bold green niche with a red tree of life woven through the centre. We love the tone of the greens and reds in this rug. This unique Kelim rug from Turkey is an authentic semi-antique piece ie c.1960s and measures approx 108cm wide by 141cm long - woven in wool.
The Usak region of Turkey has been famous for many years for its folk art kilim weaving traditions and they still make new rugs in this region. Kilim Rugs from Esme normally have geometric or striped patterns using hand-spun wool and are renowned for their Mihrab, geometric designs and beautiful colours. These older, original pieces are popular as they have so much individuality.
