Exhibited Bosnian kilims are part of the wider collection of oriental carpets from the Balkans, whose production for hundreds of years has been under the influence of Anatolian and Iranian traditions. In addition to the Bosnian, the Sarkoy kilims from Serbia and Bulgaria are also known in the Balkans. The National Museum in Sarajevo has a huge collection of old Bosnian rugs that they collected over the last 150 years. The kilims cover the time range from the middle of the 19th century until the 70s of the 20th century, mostly dating from the end of the 19th to the beginning of the 20th century. [More]
