Kil Cul or Goat wool Kilim – cm 280x145 ca. or ft 9.1x4.7 - mid or early 20th century - Real tribal pieces, eneven, sometimes bumpy, of different shades of black, grey, brown, pure primitive textiles. These rugs are really simple, very elegant, pure minimalism, no clash with your paintings or other colorful decorations in your room. i have several pieces like this, even without any added embroidered decoration like the white sytlized tents on this piece. Architects, interior decorators, artist love such pieces. These textiles were used to make tents, the famous black tents of the Nomads of the Middle East and Central Asia. But why? There are a few interesting reasons. In the rain the fibers of the handspun goat wool swell and the tent is transformed to a waterproof shelter. The tent cloth is woven loosely to allow heat dispersal. Although the black color absorbs the heat, it is still between 10 and 15 degree cooler inside the tent than outside. During Winter time it’s 10 to 15 degrees warmer. During rainstorms the yarn swells, thus closing the holes in the weave and preventing leaks. The goat’ hair is naturally oily which has an added effect of repelling the water droplets, so the tent’s occupants can remain dry.
