"'Comprehensive and authoritative... an essential guide' - Antique Collector 'Succinctly written, lavishly illustrated and reasonably priced' - Hali 'Sumptuously illustrated... anyone embarking on even the simplest purchase would do well to buy this book first' - The Financial Times"


The core of the book is devoted to the specific characteristics of region, tribe and kilim type. Four major sections using much original research document kilims from the North African countries of Morocco, Algeria and Tunisia; the enormously important kilims of Anatolia; the riches of Persia and the Caucasus; and the creations of the Afghan and Central Asian nomads.

Chapters on new kilims and the use of kilims as bags and trappings as well as rugs ? together with a reference guide to collecting, care and further study ? conclude the standard work for textile collectors and enthusiasts.
