Bessarabian Kilim, Ukraine

Bessarabian Kilim, Ukraine

This very nice kilim was woven in the Poltava region of Ukraine. Kilims were generally used on walls in the Balkans, so this piece, which is somewhat longer than most examples of this type, may have been woven for an special location with a high ceiling. Fine workmanship, the design of stylised flowers on a midnight blue field is both simple and elegant. Note the wonderful ivory border. This kilim has survived in excellent condition which can only mean that it was cherished by ts owners through the generations. Now lined with a backing.
