100 Kilims,
Masterpieces from Anatolia

Yanni Petsopoulos
Commentary to the illustrations by Belkis Balpinar

Once considered the poor manís carpet, the kilim is now seen as an art form in its own right, whose origins are independent and more ancient than those of the carpet. This book focuses on 100 selected masterpieces all of which comes from Anatolia, the Asiatic part of Turkey, where the most stunning kilims were created in villages and tents by anonymous weavers whose craft attained the status of art.
