PROVENANCE

The Shell Psychedelic Kilim Throw Pillow is a replica of a Turkish flat tapestry-woven kilim rug originating from the tribal and nomadic cultures of Anatolia. Each region producing kilims employs its own distinctive patterns and colors in the rug design. The kilim weaving technique creates clearly defined geometric shapes which are highly valued by collectors. Kilims are used either as prayer rugs or purely for decoration. In recent years, these textiles have become an increasingly popular collector's item around the world. The Ecru Maze Kuba Cloth pillow is made from fabric inspired by Kuba cloth, a unique textile featuring complex designs that are created when various geometric raffia pieces are stitched to a plain raffia background. The resulting rough surface is punctuated by repeated geometric patterns with unexpected interruptions in design. Men cultivate the raffia palm and weave the raffia cloth; women then create the patterned textiles. Traditionally, Kuba cloth was used as a wrapped skirt worn during burials. Later, it was incorporated in ceremonial dress for ritual dances and other celebrations. The Rouge Herringbone Kilim Lumbar Pillow is inspired by a Turkish flat tapestry-woven kilim rug originating from the tribal and nomadic cultures of Anatolia. The kilim weaving technique creates clearly defined geometric shapes which are highly valued by collectors.
