Bergama, Kis

Kis or Kiz is the Turkish word for a girl or a bride. This is a rug of Kis Bergama type, intended as a gift from a bride to her husband on their wedding day. The other type of the Kis rugs are the Kis Ghiordes rugs, although the tradition of rug weaving for weddings was a tradition within most villages and tribes.
