Great annual fairs in the 19th century attracted merchants from the entire Ottoman Empire. This design, with its small geometric sized floral motifs, is characteristic of the fine "Sarkoy" kilims traded there.The preference for red in folk art throughout Eastern Europe apparently derives from the belief that red kept away demons. This is a very beautiful kilim that would enhance any room. Eccentric weft tapestry weave.
Age: Middle 20th Century
