Bidjar Kilim - 2'4" x 7'7"
This Bidjar long kilim has a dominant soft saffron yellow field punctuated by clusters of closely spaced thin brown stripes. The result is a design of alternating yellow and multi-striped horizontal bands. The irregular drawing imparts a wavy quality to the design that animates and varies it, despite the simple consistency of pattern. But ultimately it is the quality of the color, the sheer beauty of the yellow, that gives the piece its gentle appeal.
