Woven by women to adorn tents and camel caravans, kilims are enduring records of life in Turkey’s nomadic communities, as well as stunning examples of abstract art. This exhibition marks the public debut of treasures from the museum’s Murad Megalli collection of Anatolian kilims dating from the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries.

Major support for this exhibition and its accompanying catalogue is provided by the Megalli Family Endowment, the Coby Foundation, Ltd., Jeremy and Hannelore Grantham, and the Markarian Foundation. Additional support is provided by the Bruce P. and Olive W. Baganz Fund for The Textile Museum Exhibitions and Publications, and Roger and Claire Pratt.
