I travel a lot to the sort of countries where carpets and flat-weaves are available and like few things better than a long afternoon negotiating over a rug or two, sipping tea and enjoying the to and from of the negotiations. Primarily I buy what I like rather than what I think is valuable but I wanted to get a bit more knowledgeable about flat-weaves (I'm really not into tufted rugs) and so I bought this fabulous book. Having previously bought rug books over the internet and then regretted it when they arrived and were unreadable or full of dull black and white photos, I LOVED this book on Kilims for its hundreds of beautiful pictures.

The chapters are arranged by the area of production and give plenty of information. I particularly like that there are lots of photos of the local people making their rugs and preparing the materials. I'm short on floor space now so it's great to be able to look at such gorgeous pictures.

Format: Paperback
This handsome book is lavishly illustrated and has a very useful glossary (though a clarification of the word "Pirot" would have been useful - it presumably refers to kilims from Pirot in Serbia). However, it is not a complete guide, since apart from a short section on Bulgaria, it completely ignores the Balkans, which were for centuries part of the Ottoman Empire and developed their own rich tradition of kilim weaving, as here in Bosnia where I live. There is not a single reference to this in the book.
