"Rothko" Mohair Filikli Tulu Carpet

ProductionTurkey 1960 Approx.

Description"Filikli" rugs are a special kind of tulu rugs with even longer mohair piles compared to the all wool tulu rug. You can find filikli rugs consisting of one or several separate wings that are dyed separately and then hand-sewn together. "Filik" denotes the locks of hair on the sides of kid mohair goats. A filikli weave is made up of warp and wefts and of tufting of 20 to 25 centimeter long bundles of kid fiber attached to the warps and wefts with Gordes knots. Like with tulu rugs, filikli rugs are used for several purposes: As wall decorations, bed or sofa covers, and even as prayer rugs. Besides their many uses, filikli rugs are also known as popular collectibles and textile art. While some are real eye-catchers because of their bright and shiny colors, other examples are simply left in their natural tones or show basic geometric designs. Original tulu and filikli rugs are very rare
