This traditional flat woven Turkish Kilim Rug has been made in a village in the environs of a town called Esme, in Turkey's Western Usak Province - this piece is woven in the flat slit-weave technique. What an amazing colour green - simple in design but big on character, we have never seen a rug like this before!! This unique little Kelim rug from Turkey is an authentic vintage piece circa 1970s and measures approx 78cm wide by 131cm long - woven in wool.
The Usak region of Turkey has been famous for many years for its flat woven rugs and 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.
