The second largest city of Syria, after Damascus, called Haleb in Arabic, has been a collecting point for the exquisite Kurdish Kilims of Syria which are woven both in the Northeastern and Northwestern regions of the country. Many of these kilims are pieced, double & triple, even quadruple and quintuple. Some of them were used as hangings or interior curtains used to create separate rooms within a house, such as the beautiful Wedding Kilim.
This antique Aleppo kilim has been woven with fine silk and metal thread. Originally was a longer kilim and this is the central part.
