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 carpets of Turkmenistan. Carpets are tremendously important in Turkmen culture, as even the flag of Turkmenistan represents various Turkmen carpet motifs. In this work Daghdan motif (name of a special type of wood), Koeshek Daban motif (camel’s heel), and Tavizi motif (intercession) have been been combined, resembling Turkmen beliefs and motifs in a modern looking design.
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.
