Heroic Hat with Recycled Jeans and Traditional Kilim


Kilim”, simply is a flat woven carpet or a kind of rug without any pile or knotted fluff: a coarse, thin hand made carpet.
 
Especially in the past, "kilim" weaving had an important role in women’s life. 


Because it was the major part of their dowry
and also a source of income and women had woven many patterns called "motifs" on kilims about their wishes.
These designs have different meanings.

On this hat is a special motif as "Ram Horn" that means "fertility", "heroism", "power" and "masculinity".

When kilims contain "Ram Horns", it tells happiness whom weaves it.
The hat is made of recycled blue jeans, brown velvet tassels and 3 pieces of a colorful kilim.


Inside of the hat is satin fabric as dark green and it is wrapped a satin ribbon as navy blue around of the hat.
It is completely handmade without any helping of sewing machine.

Approximately Size: 58 cm-60 cm (22.8 in -23.6 in)
