Romanian Antique Rugs and Carpets

Romanian Antique Rugs and Carpets top hr

Three distinct styles evolved in the three areas of Moldavia, Oltenian and in the central district of Transylvania. Romanian rugs are based on the Bessarabian kelim and were first used as wall hangings and blankets. Moldavian rugs are geometrically designed often utilizing the tree of life symbol in subdued colors. Oltenian carpets often have a black or green background, depicting figures and scenes, reminiscent of Persian miniatures, such as hunting parties. The last style, those of central Transylvania, is primarily influence by oriental rugs with firm borders and small-stylized flowers, sometimes with birds and animals.
