Kilim, but also modern!
Kilim is a type of carpet that has been developed in various regions of the world from North Africa to Anatolia, and from the Caucasus to Iran and Central Asia.
Each design was inspired by various elements and components of a region or a tribe from Iran or Afghanistan.
This cushion has been inspired from Kilims of northwestern Khorasan of Iran, a historical region that is today part of Iran, Afghanistan, Turkmenistan and Uzbekistan. Most Kilim motifs are simple; expressing nature or basic life concepts in abstract geometrical shapes. The motif used in this design is called “it al”, which means dog’s hand , resembling an inseparable part of nomadic life.
This cushion has been printed with environmentally friendly printing process on a very soft fabric; then carefully hand-tailored to become a unique cushion. It is 40cmx40cm in size and the zipper is concealed.
