Vintage Turkish Hand-Knotted Rug | Balikesir Rustic Flat-Woven Rug in Terracotta / Cream / Orange 1960s
Introducing our exquisite Mid-Century Rustic Runner, a timeless masterpiece handwoven with meticulous care and dedication by Anatolian women artisans in the heart of Balikesir, Turkey. Transport yourself to the vibrant spirit of the 1960s as you behold the intricate craftsmanship that unfolded over more than two months to bring this unique piece to life.
Emanating from the looms of Balikesir, this kilim rug proudly showcases the classic patterns of the region — vivid and colorful stripes, interspersed with the distinctive "burdock" motifs seamlessly woven into the fabric of tradition. The thoughtful inclusion of subtle, tiny fringes along the width on both ends adds an extra touch of authenticity and charm.
Dive into a rustic color palette that whispers tales of the earth — from the warm embrace of terracotta and khaki to the timeless elegance of cream and the energetic bursts of oranges and grays. The dance of black and white along the stripes creates a captivating contrast, while a contemporary lavender-toned stripe near one edge introduces an element of asymmetry and modern creativity.
Measuring 5x10, this versatile kilim runner is not confined by space; rather, it gracefully adapts to a multitude of settings. From the living room to the kitchen, dining room, guest room, bedroom, large hallways, entryways, doorways, offices, and even galleries — the possibilities are as boundless as the rug's appeal.
Its harmonious color palette and timeless design make it a seamless addition to a variety of interior styles, including modern farmhouse, cottage, rustic, tribal, transitional, and traditional. Let this Rustic Runner Rug be the focal point of your space, weaving stories of tradition and craftsmanship into the fabric of your home. Elevate your interior with the warmth, character, and elegance that only a piece of such historical and artistic significance can provide.
