The colours of our antique kilim rugs were obtained from natural dyes.
The colours on kilim rugs woven in the middle of the 20th century were obtained from industrial dyes.
The natural dyes were obtained from decoctions of bark and roots using processes that are now forgotten.
In order to obtain a beautiful pink, one used an onion-based decoction. To obtain a beautiful turquoise, one used a decoction based on walnut bark. The use of plants for dyeing wool was time-consuming. The wool had to soak for a long time in order to absorb the colours.
Industrial dyes were popular as soon as they appeared. They allowed a drastic reduction in the wool dyeing phase. They offered a wider range of colours.
The colours used for weaving a floral rug depended on the region where the kilim rug was woven. In the north of Moldova people liked bright colours and kilims with floral patterns. In the south of the country, people liked kilims with pastel colours and less floral patterns.
Moldavian floral rugs were the centrepieces of the wedding trousseau. The price of these kilim rugs was very high. A bride who owned several floral kilims was considered rich.
The value of a Moldavian floral rug was determined by its size and motif. The flowery floral rugs were at the top of the scale. Woollen kilim rugs with geometrical patterns were ranked lower.
Dimension of the floral rug: 194cm x 330cm
The weaving of Moldavian floral rugs had its moment of glory between the beginning of the 20th century and until the 80s. Today, this tradition has almost disappeared due to competition from industrial carpets.
