Fethiye kilim, 323 x 149 cm, Turkey, Muğla province, Fethiye district, Aegean Region.
Antique Fethiye kilim, handwoven in split kilim technique, in original condition with signs of wear/restorations.
With a characteristic continuous graph/drawing resembling diamond patterns with a varied colour composition, placed in a diagonal setting on a clear white/ivory base which gives the total composition a strong perspective/depth. An extensive and complete palette of mostly natural dyes. The colours show the characteristic abrash (shade variations of a single colour/dye) inherent to the dyeing, fixation, drying and twining process. The front and back show an identical colour scheme.
Edges/finish on all sides in good, original condition. Restored in a number of places: photos 8, 9, 10 and 11. The end at the top if fully original and the warp/fringe are finished/woven horizontally: photos 13 and 14. The end on the bottom is festooned and fixed. Photo 15 shows a local unstable paint that did not fix well after washing the kilim.
The rug is grit/dust free and has been washed.
