Prizren Kilim

Prizren

Late 20th century

This is a high quality, double-panelled weaving from the region of Prizren, Kosovo.This beautiful piece was intended to serve as a sitting and sleeping mat for guests and could serve as a prayer mat. In recent times these have been used to cover furniture. There are 15 alternating bands of diamond-shaped wreaths, with smaller bands adjoining much larger bands. The details are very intricate, using yellow, white, pink, orange, and black lines to create the dazzling designs. A silvery fringe of non-organic fiber has been attached separately. This piece was made by a bride as a gift for her new husband's family on a horizontal loom.This type is never seen outside Kosovo. Suitable for hanging or used as a table covering.
