What Makes Our Kilim Cross Body Bags Special
A handbag is such an important part of every woman’s wardrobe. This fall colorful bags reign and everyone wants something unique. Our Kilim cross body bags are a fashionable and colorful way to accessorize an outfit and carry one’s essentials. Our kilim cross- body bags are special because no two are exactly alike! This is due to the unique way they are crafted. There is a rich history behind the making of these kilim shoulder bags. The art of kilim weaving originated among the tribal people in ancient Turkey. The word kilim does not refer to a specific item, but rather to the way the item is made. It is a specialized weaving technique in which the weaver interlaces the warp (the vertical fibers) and weft (the horizontal fibers) on a loom to produce a flat woven fabric. Originally a utilitarian craft used to turn raw wool into cloth for clothing, rugs, and other household goods, generations of artisans transformed kilim weaving into an art form, incorporating the tribe’s common history and the personal talents of each weaver. At Beksan Designs, we offer a variety of intricately patterned Turkish kilim cross-body bags. In fact, each one is unique due to the traditional hand-weaving process. Unusual patterns and brilliant colors combine to create a stylish, functional accessory—measuring approximately 10 inches by 7½ inches, these shoulder bags are large enough to carry your essentials, yet small enough to use on the go. They can even carry a mini I-pad if needed! The front of the bag is made with an eye-catching kilim weave, which is best shown off by draping it over your shoulder. The backside and shoulder strap are made of soft black cotton. A clip closes the purse and keeps contents safely stored. These sophisticated Turkish kilim cross body bags are both fashionable and unique.
