Mohair Kilim Cushion 40x40cm

£35.00

Lovingly made from a handwoven vintage Turkish kilim. 

Bringing the earthy colours of the middle east to you with natural plant dyed shades of brown, black and white.

Lovely soft goat mohair.

This cushion will bring pleasure and joy to your living room and home.

Whereas goat hair is rougher that wool, angora goat hair, “mohair”, is much softer and gives a silky sheen when mixed with wool. Mohair is also used to make the lustrous “filikli tulu” with its shining locks of hair.

Kilim, a word of Turkish origin, denotes a pileless textile of many uses produced by one of several flatweaving techniques that have a common or closely related heritage and are practiced in the geographical area that includes parts of Turkey (Anatolia and Thrace), North Africa, the Balkans, the Caucasus, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Central Asia and China.

Kilim weawing was (and still is) a strenuous and laborious work, so it’s often seen like a writing, a story and a diary of the person who made it. For centuries, women have been weaving their pain, joy, messages and symbols into the rugs.
