dear guido,

here is a pattern of your rug:



the image is from the book: (total of 5 books)

http://www.turkelhalilari.gov.tr/say...cerik=yayinlar

your rug is item number 089.

i fell in love with a catalog piece in the past, and living in turkey, i was able to track down some people who could actually weave it for me for the very dimensions i wanted. the original plan was to have it woven from antique wool (old undyed kilim wool which is mostly used for restorations and repairs after proper dying), but i had no control of the production and the material was not nearly as good as i was promised. (i live in istanbul, weaving was done in sultanhani) and eventhough it does not have the charismatic aged look of my older ones, it is still one of my favorites.

as soon as i can find some time to go through my library, i will let you know of anything i may find on balikesir production techniques.
