Gilam Kilim Collection

Anatolia, with its blend of cultures and civilizations, presents us extraordinarily beautiful kilims, which are characterized by strong abstractions and improvisations.
As a product of the abstract art of Anatolia, kilims let us witness a charming journey from the traditional to the universal. Kilims are an ‘atlas of symbols’, which give expression to memories in the form of beautiful motifs and a rich range of colors.         
In these kilims, as well as timeless myths and mystical fables, personal stories are also given expression to in symbolic language. These have been woven by traditional methods for centuries, the ‘Gilam’ kilim collection is inspired by these wealthy sources.
