These highly sophisticated kilims came from the high plateaus of Anatolian Kurdistan.
The Cirpi were made of narrow strips of dyed wool, woven on easy to carry, lightweight looms. The strips were then assembled with bold stitches in different colours and often enriched with multiple elements used as amulets: buttons, small embroideries and shredded fabric. These elements point out the pre-Islamic origins of these ancient cultures.
