Vintage Turkish Hand-Knotted Rug | Denizli Oriental Cecim Kilim in Red / Navy / Green 1950s
In the heart of Denizli, Turkey, where the rich tapestry of history and artistry seamlessly intertwines, this exquisite hand-knotted kilim rug was born. Crafted during the mid-century by the skilled hands of women artisans, it embodies not just the essence of an era, but a commitment to sustainable craftsmanship using only the purest of materials.
Organic cotton and wool threads, along with the artistry of natural dyes, converge in a harmonious dance, weaving a narrative that transcends time. This is not just a rug; it's a testament to tradition, an ode to the past. It is crafted using the revered "cecim" technique, known by many names – jijim, jejim, jajim, cicim – each evoking the echoes of a bygone era.
Measuring a grand 6x11, it unfurls its vibrant tale, a three-layered canvas resplendent in shades as rich as a tapestry of dreams. The outer layer, resplendent in crimson, showcases delicate floral motifs set against a verdant backdrop. Moving inward, the second layer reveals a profusion of green clover motifs, a testament to the prosperity that tradition brings.
However, at the heart of this masterpiece lies the pièce de résistance – a colossal medallion that ensnares the gaze. Vibrant red florals and timeless motifs bloom on a navy and red backdrop, a stunning emblem of artistic prowess and an evocation of the age-old charm of Anatolian heritage.
Surrounding this masterpiece are the stunning borders, each replete with intricate Anatolian patterns, where history whispers its stories in threads of gold, crimson, and emerald. This rug is not just an accessory; it is a window to another time, a bridge to the past.
Unseen until now, this one-of-a-kind oriental rug is a priceless addition to Kilim Couture New York's rug collection, a testament to craftsmanship, history, and the enduring allure of Turkish artistry.
