Carefully repurposed from a handwoven vintage Turkish kilim rug.
This cushion will bring pleasure and joy to your living room and home.
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.
Size: 50cm x 50cm
Made from wool with contrast cotton back and zip closure.
This is a brilliant handwoven piece made in eastern Turkey from super soft mohair goat hair.
Originally made to be used as a prayer rug and blanket.
Would make a lovely wall hanging or can be just laid on the floor right next to your bed to bring a warm cosy feel under your feet.
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.
