With Drama and Dynamism this Vintage Handwoven Kilim Yastik will Enliven Your Home

’s a lovely and lively authentic weaving to bring zip into your home.

It’s a handwoven wool yastik, a seating pillow cover, once used on the cold stone benches of village homes in Eastern Turkey.

Woven painstakingly by a very skilled woman, who knew how to make the stitches fly and the warp and weft blend artfully, this creation dating from the 1970s is full of possibilities for a happy and long life yet.

It’s in very good condition, with few signs of wear on the face panel, although the back shows its age, but is still intact.

The colors are vivid and bold: fuchsia, reds, golds and blacks. The design is one of hooked diamonds which draw the eye with their dynamism and drama.

Try this weaving in your home as table runner, pillow covers, wall hanging, or . . . ?
