Red Background Tribal Design Vintage Turkish Kilim Rug, Country of Origin: Turkey, Circa Date: 2nd Quarter of the 20th Century – True to the striking tribal vintage rug style of Turkish Kilim rugs, this piece uses stark colors and bold shapes to create a vibrant masterpiece. The red background defines the piece and sets up a stage on which the other colors can play. Deep black, milky white, soft blue, mellow tangerine and vibrant orange tones each complement the other, creating a unique tribal network that keeps up with the vibrant red. Angular forms create sharp sections of contrast around the foreground, defining the composition of the borders to create an almost thorn-like appearance. These lead to the core of the Turkish rug, where similar shapes create bright coronas around three large blossoms, the primary focal points of the rug’s core.
