Kilim by Heike Weber is Filled With Ghosts of Carpets

The art series titled Kilim by Heike Weber revolves around ghosts of Turkish rugs. As stunningly ornate as the real thing, these carpets offer a unique interpretation of the traditional and time-honored practice. In place of heavy wool and other luxurious materials, the patterns often associated with Turkish rugs have been outlined on bare floors in thread and nothing more.

The German artist was inspired to create this art series after completing an exchange program in the Middle East. Mesmerized by the rugs sold in bazaars, she decided to create her own instead of spending a small fortune on one. Kilim by Heike Weber was the result. Of course, the pieces may not be as practical as a real Turkish rug, but the idea is the same. Not to mention they are much more captivating.
