Add it to your favorites to revisit it later.
This kilim is a traditional Maimana area rug, 100% wool, including the warp. Colors are soft, almost muddy; nice rustics that would look great in a cabin! This rug would work well either on the floor or as a wall hanging. You would need a rubber mat if you use it as a rug.

Kilims are especially nice as they are easy to clean. They vacuum well and can be hosed down with shampoo for occasional cleaning.

Here is some information taken from a website called kilim-warehouse. Please visit their site for more information on Central Asian rugs:

"Maimana, capital of the Faryab province, is a bazaar and marketplace for kilims from the large surrounding areas of North Afghanistan and bordering Turkestan. Maimana kilims, often extremely large, and particularly hardwearing, were originally woven indoors on large vertical looms, sometimes in specially constructed Yurts (tents) by the regional Uzbeks. Subsequently, they were copied and were also woven by the many other tribes in the area, Aimaqs, Hazaras, Tajics and Turkomen.

Maimana kilims are easily recognizable by their simple patterns of diamonds and triangles, in strong reds, oranges, blues and rusty browns, the central designs often being delineated by white borders. The main borders of the kilims themselves are geometrically patterned traditional designs, such as darakht - tree design, or daryaa - river design. The wool originally used was from Hazaragi and Ghilzai sheep and was coarse and loosely spun."


Estimated age: 1980's

Dimensions:
40" wide x 73.5" long
101.6 cm wide x 186.65 cm

Condition: Very good. Nothing obviously wrong with it. Great price for a sizable weaving!
