Kilim mid-20th century, southwest Turkey

The patterns and colors of this kilim are very characteristic of the Çal region.

Its dimensions are more unusual in the width.


Kilims from the Çal area are woven from medium to fine wools. Most of the time, there is a central medallion, but there may also be a few striped motifs scattered around the medallion, and the borders are decorative. But what particularly characterizes this region are the warm colors used. Lots of orange, some reds, yellows and greens. Çal kilims are always woven in one piece.

Weaving: Women learned the art of kilim weaving from their mothers or grandmothers.
Kilims were woven by hand, using hand-spun wool, which they dyed as they went along.

Patterns and colors: Each region had its own way of spinning wool, its own patterns and its own palette of colors.

These antique kilims were intended for domestic use.
They were woven without drawing boards, which adds a real personal touch and makes them unique pieces.
Their beauty depends on the way the weaver has interpreted the motifs and combined the colors.
That's why we choose our kilims one by one, to select only the most beautiful.

Every day: you can vacuum, but not at maximum power. Avoid vacuum cleaners with rotating brushes.

Liquid spills: mop up as much liquid as possible and rub gently with a damp cloth. 

Grease stains: soak up as much grease as possible with paper towels or terre de Sommières.

Accidents involving animals: in this case, it's very important to act quickly, as animals release acids that will damage wool. Treat your kilim following the same advice as for spilled liquids. 

For a more thorough cleaning: it may be that the stains have not been completely treated, or that over the years, despite regular maintenance, dust has settled in and a grey veil has set in. In such cases, it's time to turn to a professional. 

That's why we offer a cleaning service, carried out by a company specialized in manual and wet carpet cleaning.
