Flatwoven Runners - Kilims & Cicims

    From the collection of Marla Mallett

Both brocaded rugs and slit-tapestry kilims have occasionally been produced by nomadic artisans in yolluk sizes--tent panels or ground covers in long, narrow formats. But well-designed and well-crafted old ethnographic weavings that are sturdy enough for use in heavy traffic areas are rare. Sometimes a single half of a durable two-part kilim has survived, and can be used as a runner.  

Click on the inventory numbers below to see photos of complete kilims and large details. For other gallery offerings, go to our Tribal Textiles or HOME pages.
