In this year's exhibition on Symbol and Colour the Gallery KELIM is presenting textile works of art covering a period of four centuries.
The flat weaves and rugs exhibited come from different regions - from South East Europe to North East Persia. The oldest exhibits date from the 17th and 18th centuries; the latest ones were produced in the early 20th century.
In the exhibition you will find outstanding examples of the most exquisite antique textile art, amongst them the Timuri Kilim (19th cent.), the Chessboard Tülü (19th cent.), the Konya Rug on a yellow ground (17th/18th cent.), several Caucasian Mafrash, Cuval and small bags.
In the entrance, visitors are presented with a small selection of Jajims from the Chorasan (North East Persia). These rugs were woven in the early 20th century. Sadly, such works of art have received very little attention over the years and are still being taken apart and used for repairs.
