Shirvan kilims from the southern Caucasus have become extremely collectible. Since Kilims are tapestry type flatweaves (no pile), finding one that is over 125 years in such a great condition is extremely rare. The village weavers usually made these in two pieces because in the limitation of the size of their looms and then sew them together. The combination of bright and beautiful colors in rows make this a breathtaking piece of art.
