My new Collection: Vintage Kilim.

Posted by Petra Veerman on

I would like to introduce my new Collection: 

Recently I travelled to Morocco, where I found some amazing treasures. 

In Marrakech I bought these beautiful vintage Kilim fabrics and poufs. I immediately fell in love with the colourful, vintage look of these items. My creative site got triggered and I loaded up on fabrics, carpets and poufs. From the vintage fabric I made pillows in different sizes. They are cool, boho and very decorative. They will fit any style.

The poufs are amazing. They are made from vintage kilim tapestries and you can fill them with for example, down, foam, blankets, old cloths, plastic bags and even paper.

They may have some irregularities and signs of usage. But this is the charm of the vintage character.

*A kilim is a flat tapestry-woven carpet or rug traditionally produced in countries of the former Ottoman Empire, Morocco, Iran, Azerbaijan and Turkic countries of Central Asia

 

The items I sell where handwoven by Berber woman from the middle Atlas Mountains of Morocco on a traditional loom with sheep and camel wool and coloured with vegetable dye. Using century’s old handcraft technics.

 

Kilims can be purely decorative or can function as prayer rugs. Later they start using these rugs to make poufs, pillows and even bags.
