U-4997 - Vintage Turkish Kilim Rug Runner
6ft 02in X 12ft
This vintage Turkish flat weave Kilim was hand-woven in the 1940's. The simplicity and boldness of this piece can also give a contemporary feel and is able to look at home in both a modern and traditional setting. The geometric design in soft colors is typical of the style woven in Turkey during this period. Colors: pale blue/terracotta/ivory/multi.
Vacuum your rug frequently and use a vacuum which uses suction and does not have bristles. If possible, set vacuum to low power setting and vacuum the rug up and down and do not use a back-and-forth motion.
If possible, rotate the rug every few years to allow foot traffic to be spread evenly and shade the rug from direct sunlight to avoid fading in areas.
A rug pad is recommended on all surfaces to prevent slipping and stop marking if on floors with grooves or lines. Professional cleaning is recommended every two or three years.
