Bessarabian Rugs

Circa: 1960

Vintage handwoven Bessarabian Kilim with an ornate design in soft red and gold on a black ground. The antique & vintage carpets of Bessarabia are almost all flatwoven with profuse, semi-French patterns, and woven in southern Russia, originally for an affluent domestic market. Designs of floral bouquets and vases, often on desirable black grounds, are popular on 19th century carpets, often in large, square sizes. A few are pile woven, however. The designs still feel contemporary even though they employ traditional elements. Although the original market was the Russian nobility, now everyone can enjoy their exotic yet European flair.
