What if the Bohemian design concept carries the history and traces of Anatolia? Bohemtolia explores Anatolian people, products and resources to find the answer and reflects this Anatolian spirit on its products.
Bohemtolia’s new collection “Alem” – meaning universe in Turkish- combines handweaving tradition and symbols of Anatolia with the modern designs. Bohemtolia offers new series Afitap and Leyla kilims and kilim pillows under the Alem collection. Feed your Bohemian soul, browse the unique colors of Afitap and Leyla kilims and kilim pillows to reflect your original taste.
The Afitap series in different colors came to life with natural dyeing yarns in order to add a sharp, soft, remarkable or peaceful interpretation to the bohemian decoration. Kilim motifs are used by people as unspoken expression of feelings and the diamond shaped “Baklava” and “Hourglass” motifs express the boundaries of life and the transcience of time. Afitap – meaning sunlight in Turkish- is the most meaningful word that tells us about these two motives. The sunlight is the only source of life and time. Afitap kilims will be at the center of your decoration alike the sun in the center of the universe.
The Leyla series has monochrome colored kilims with natural dyed yarns to add a contrast to the minimalist style and bohemian decoration. Geometric figures as triangles or rectangular dominate the minimal design as a symbol of unspoken culture of Anatolia. As stated in yin-yang philosophy everything exists with its contrast and neither black nor white can give up each other. ""Leyla"" – meaning night in Turkish- is the most meaningful word that tells us about these two color cycles. Night can only exist if day exists. We must give space to white to see black. Leyla kilims are the most peaceful piece of bohemian decoration just like night.
