Sydney Song Turkish Kilim
This gorgeous vintage hemp Turkish Kilim rug was made in the central Anatolia/Black Sea region in Turkey. The hemp fibres have been overdyed using natural dyes in a various shades of turquoise, purple and blue, and then sewn together in a lovely patchwork style. The rug is finished with cotton backing.
Turkish villagers produced hemp stalk until the 1960's when its production was prohibited. Because of prohibition, hemp fibre and hemp rugs became incredibly rare, and today it can be difficult to find original hemp Kilim rugs.
This rug is organic, handspun, handwoven, and handmade out of natural fibre, and the durability and thermostatic effect hemp creates makes it act as a natural thermostat in both summer and winter.
