The Catan area rug is made from handmade vintage Hemp Kilim. We love and use Kilim a lot, and have for quite a while, in pillows, rugs and upholstery. Just another case of our Tumbleweed designers being ahead of the trends!
This large area room rug is a beautiful cream with dark brown, red and blue detail stitching and patch details.
Rug Measures: 5' 9" x 8' 8"
What it is: Kilim is of Turkish origin and is a word used to describe a pile-less textile produced by one of the several flat weaving techniques. These methods are commonly seen in parts of Turkey, North Africa, Iran, and Pakistan. This woven fabric is traditionally used for rugs or tapestries but "is becoming more popular for handmade cushions, made-to-measure curtains or upholstery."
