Antique 7'X7' Bulgarian Thick & Heavy Wool Flokati Rug

Look at this ! Don't miss it!

Up for sale is this amazing creamy light yellow square flokati rug or so called in Bulgarian "Kitenik"
It comes from the Rhodope Mountain in Bulgaria, Eastern Europe - the lands of the Thracians. This place inherits the mysticism and the energy of the ancient times. Many different cultures and ethnics crossed those lands for thousands of years.
This rug was and still can be also used as a blanket. It is all hand made out of raw thick and heavy wool. Each string is long up to 8", which is twice the size of the common Greek flokati rugs or the modern examples This particular rug dates back to the late 1800's or early 1900's. It belongs to a friend of ours, who brought it in US some 30 years ago. He bought it from an old man, who had it since his childhood and was crafted by his mother. Their family possessed at the time over 800 sheep and a huge lot of land. He used to be shepherd most of his life
