(slightly scratchy) thing of beauty

When i was a kid I knew of kilim rugs as the scratchy, terribly uncomfortable textiles that my grandmother liked to make pillows out of.  Over the years, however, their faded colors, exquisite craftmanship and value as remnants of an ancient artistic tradition have grown on me.  I found this bag from the 70’s in New York on Fashion’s Night Out this past friday at Exquisite Costume in Soho.
