Southern kilim

Korce region

Early 20th century

Although this kilim is just over 6 square meters, it is still only a fragment of a much larger piece. It was probably made before WW2 and then cut up in the communist era (1945 to 1991) to fit into much reduced rooms in government housing. It is a thin kilim and therefore used on a floor in a huge, traditional house with large sitting rooms for men. It features red flowers and yellow fruit on a brown vine, perhaps yet another version of the Tree of Life. Abrash is found throughout as the yarn was dyed by hand. There are two remaining red border bands, each edged different and of different thicknesss.
