Project Kilims from Turkey


The skill of making a large variety of rich colours from natural dyes almost became lost, and it is no longer known how to make quite a few colours. Gradually these skills are being rediscovered…

kilims are hand weaving with needle. they are %100 hand made. meaning of this is %100 hand spin wool + %100 natural colours + % hand weaving. they are projekt kilims. this projekt start 1990 by the government the name is ”dobag”. meaning of this is: returnning to the tradition. because al this natural colours are missing dye’s. we work in this projekt to try to give life agein for a missing culture and the dye.2000 peaple has been working for the projekt. in the and we find very beatiful and valuable colours. the kilims you have now they are the best new kilims of the world. be sure aboute this. as much as you use they get better and better. the wool get’s soft and shinning. by the time when they are old they are becoming more and expensive and valuable. in the year one time you can wash them (cold water and shampoo). if you drop on them anything dont worry they are not absorb them in side.because hand spin wool is only absorb things if you are boild them… ” (Hasan, Turkey , January 2008)
