Traditionally hand-dyed with natural vegetable dyes
The vivacious colors of this rug and "Wolf's mouth' motif that borders the interior diamond design is intended to symbolize a bold solidarity and protection against a common enemy - which in villages of Turkey in that time, were predominantly wolves who would attack livestock of the farmers.
A handwoven kilim is ultimately a story or a prayer, a narrative of the weaver who is painstakingly weaving every thread on their tapestry with purpose and love.
This gorgeous piece would serve a protective purpose in the main room of a home or entryway, guarding the door of your home.
Each rug in our collection is hand picked for rarity, unusual markings and design. They all come with a certificate of origin from the antique rug gallery in Izmir, Turkey from which they were sourced.
