Semi-antique Aleppo/Reyhanli Kilim

Carmin background, white and multi-colored border, and blue, green, orange, pink, black and warm brown hooks


Aleppo was a part of the Ottoman empire, and its kilim production (now a thing of the past since more than one century) is more usually associated with the Anatolian work. It is characterized by fine weaving, reciprocal patterns, and, like here, rows of hooks. Like most of the kilims from this region, this one has a big size, is woven in two halves, and was once used as door or window curtains. The color palette with distinct burgundy/carmin red and green colors is particularly cheerful.
