Silk kilims in Turkey are handwoven in the easternmost part of the country, near Mount Ararat. Because weaving regions have their own unique styles, kilims from Ararat have lots of animals because of the story of Noah's Ark, which we believe landed on this mountain.

Sometimes before an entire silk kilim is woven by hand, the weaver will make a sample of her pattern and colors to make sure it's what she'd like to weave. Often, these Noah's Ark silk kilims are composed of multiple block patterns, so the weaver makes several designs and works out her larger rug scheme with these samplers. An entire rug takes months to weave since silk fibers are so fine.

Use as a wall hanging, to adorn a table or combine a sampler with other materials to make a bag, a pillow or whatever else you can dream up!

Approximately 13" (33cm)long by 11" (28cm)wide
