About The Artist:

The term Kelim applies to tapestry woven fabrics in the Near East. The technique produces a weft-faced textile in which the warps are concealed. The wefts are discontinuous and return as the design/color changes. Unless the wefts of two adjacent color areas pass around the same warp a slit is produced, and this technique used in most areas. This is referred to as a slit tapestry weave. If the areas are connected, is is known as a linked tapestry weave.

Anatolian Kelim rugs are often long and narrow and woven in two halves. This is done when the weaver is using a narrow loom. They have the usual carpet layout of fields and borders, the field containing large medallions on the long axis, surrounded by scattered geometric or stylized floral motifs.
