This woven textile is carefully applied to a white linen substrate, which provides a border between the textile and frame. The product is framed in a white modern cap wood moulding. St. Frank's signature gold plate is featured in the bottom right-hand corner of the piece.

Polishing

Surface gloss can be maintained by using a soft cloth and specialty plastic cleaner or polish, following cleaning fluid container instructions.

Cleaning

Begin by gently blowing away any loose dust or dirt from the lucite surface. Using a mild soap solution or a plastic cleaner and a non-abrasive lint-free cloth, wipe the surface using light pressure. To remove grease, oil, or tar deposits use hexane or kerosene followed by a soap solution.

Removing Scratches

Fine scratches may be removed by hand polishing with a plastic polish scratch remover. Remove all residue and polish with a soft cloth.

All orders placed after 2 PM PT will be processed on the next business day.

Provenance

This St. Frank Turkish flat tapestry-woven kilim rug originates from the tribal and nomadic cultures of Anatolia. Each region producing kilims employs its own distinctive patterns and colors in the rug design. This particular piece was created in Cappadocia, Central Anatolia and displays 3,500 year-old traditional Turkish motifs. The kilim weaving technique creates open slits in between color changes, producing 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.
