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.
The Collection Kilimoderno has been created through an intense exploration of the Kilims of all the world: what the colors, patterns, and symbols mean, and how Kilim has been evolved in different countries over the centuries.
Each design was inspired by various elements and components of a region or a tribe from Iran or Afghanistan.
The old traditional patterns and forms have been merged with contemporary components and have been modernized to create new concepts.
This cushion has been inspired from Kilims of Maimana, a city in northwestern in Afghanistan, where buying a Kilim only comes after hours of negotiations in Bazaar. “Maimana Kilims are easily recognizable by their rhythmic geometric patterns and harmonious and rich colors”. The motif used, is the star motif made by diamonds and triangles, resembling the beautiful night sky of this region.
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.
