This rug's intricate design and repetitive and random color change means it would have taken an incredibly long time to weave.
The motifs of the female known as 'elibelinde' which means 'hands on hips' is the time-honored symbol of motherhood and fertility.
The weavers brave choice of color and the repetitive heart shapes truly encapsulates the Turkish spirit and joy they feel in their celebration of family and the importance they place upon woman's role as 'nurturer'. This rug was a meant as a narrative and prayer for the user of this rug to bring true pleasure to their role as the woman.
A wonderful modern addition to a nursery, bedroom or sunroom, this Kilim will lift the mood of any space.
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.
