In the large south-eastern Anatolia kilim family an important place is occupied by a group of pieces known as Reyanli.
These are kilim coming from the village of the same name, near Antakya (ancient Antioch) near the current Syrian border.
At the time of these kilim's weaving, this village was part of the Ottoman Empire, in the province of Aleppo.
The weaving of these kilim ceased at the beginning of the 20th Century and only a few pieces of value remain. The high quality of these fabrics is due to the influence exercised by Circassic craftsmen (of Caucasian origin) who settled in the region around the middle of the 19th century.
They used a thin wool yarn combined with an extremely fine weave, unusual in the Anatolian kilim. These kilim have a narrow, long structure that is woven in two halves with central stitching and bordered with stylized patterns of vines and leaves.
The oldest examples have an extremely dense and fine weave.
They generally have a symmetrical structure and a very clear design.
These characteristics are explained by the fact that they were frequently commissioned for domestic use in the urban residences of the most well-off castes.
Contrary to most other Anatolian kilim, used exclusively by the weaver, these pieces were manufactured to be sold.

Like many of the other surviving kilim in good condition, this piece has probably been woven with great care to be part of the dowry and kept as a family heirloom.
Although it shows some signs of restoration, the design and colours are excellent and the piece is a remarkable example of Reyhanli weaving.

The very fine weave of this kilim makes it more suitable for display on the wall.
