KONYA HANDMADE KILIM RUG ( FLAT WEAVING )
Konya handmade Kilims are very famous. Konya is the oldest known carpet-making center in the world. Marko Polo mentioned carpet workshops when the Seljuk (Sell jewk) Sultans controlled the Konya region in the 13th century. Before this time, the Apostle Paul started churches in this area during the 1st century. This Konya handmade kilim is the product of long months of labor. A Konya handmade kilim requires great skill and patience since the weavers make and produce their own natural dyes, roll the wool by hand and use fine knots for a tight weave. The village women who weave these kilims live where the floors are wood, stone or packed earth and make them to be very useful, warm and long lasting. Each kilim is also a source of pleasure to its owners because it is unique and reflects not only the stories, models and designs of their village or region but also the personality of the weaver. In fact, designs vary from village to village - even when they are only several miles apart. We hope that this 100% wool handmade kilims proves to be a joy and investment to you and will also make you think of the peoples of Turkey.
