About this item

Large and colourful kilim rugs look beautiful and would stand out as hallway rugs or bedroom rugs. This Kelim is an excellent example of Eastern European handwoven and flat-weave tapestry rugs, traditionally produced in Pirot, a town in Southeastern Serbia. The yarns are all hand-spun and had been dyed by organic dyes. This colourful flat woven carpet rug is woven by very skilled weavers in Serbia, who used the highest quality wool and cotton. The flat-weave rug has light blue, orange, green, white, pink and brown colours. The blue background of this floral rug has the same patterns in different central medallion design. The border, however, has wide ivory borders with a light orange border in the edge. These washable rugs are one of a kind and cannot be found in every rug warehouse or rug store. This wool rug has a very elegant central medallion. Bessarabian Kilim rugs are the commonly given name for rugs in pile and tapestry technique originating in Russian provinces as well as Ukraine and Moldova during the late 19th-early 20th centuries. This example is of circa the 1870s and is of floral design.
