Antique Turkish Kilims

November 15, 2010 at 10:17 AM 1 comment

Every since our trip to Turkey last year, I’ve had the little thought in my head that an antique turkish kilim would complete our home.  Although, I don’t think our home will be completed with such a piece as they are pricey.  When we were in Istanbul, we went to the rug houses where we drank massive amounts of apple tea and admired rug after rug after rug.  My husband was a real trooper for sitting through these sessions as even I tired of them.  We walked away without a rug but with a fun experience.

Here was an image I had in my mind for inspiration on a Turkish Kilim:

Well, when you can’t travel back to a country for another look, E-Bay can always come to the rescue.  I didn’t find any kilims today that spoke to me, but I did find this great pillow made from an antique kilim.
