Antique Cicim

Rare piece with delicate natural colors and subtle embroideries


This cicim (embroidered kilim) is a delightful old piece from Anatolia. Only half of the original piece has survived; it was probably converted into two runners. The weaver combined five or six colors with many ethereal elements to create this lively composition. Some small tears. Wear is consistent with age and use.
