Description - Flatweaves of Turkey by Arend T. Bandsma

Illustrated in colour, this text highlights the sheer beauty of Turkish flatweaves by presenting a range of kilim types from diverse regions of Turkey. A total of 118 examples, ranging from prayer kilims to yastiks and brocades, are illustrated and discussed, emphasizing the wealth of colour and innovative designs used by mainly nomadic and village women in Turkey. The flatweaves selected for the book are all traditional weavings (of cultural significance), possessing good natural dyes and a harmony of design and colour. Most date from the 19th century.
