Vintage kilim from the Afyon region, Turkey. This vintage kilim was handwoven by a nomadic or village woman, using her own hand-spun and carded wool. This kilim is from a place called Afyon, which translates to “opium,” where even today this crop is grown for pharmaceutical purposes, and it is said that once the resin is extracted from the plants, the rest is given to the cows, which produce high-fat milk. With this a local cream is made, or Kaymak, by which Afyon is known. The design of this kilim exudes strength and energy. The horizontal bands with beautiful color changes stand out. A big kilim with a great personality!
