The term Kilim is a word of Turkish origin that is used to describe a pile-less, tapestry-woven carpet produced by using a flatweave technique. Kilim rugs have a long history dating back thousands of years. The most well-known Kilims are those of Turkey or Anatolia, which are varied in different types and designs, but Persian and Caucasian Kilims are also appreciated nowadays for their color and high technical skill. Given their thinner structure, Kilims are used not only as a decorative floor covering, but also as wall hangings, table covers, bedspreads, or furniture coverings.
Today’s Kilims still incorporate the colorful designs, tribal symbols, and geometric patterns that were used thousands of years ago. Kilim rugs are primarily made of wool, this material is well known for its durability. Cotton is also used because it can be woven into fine strands that can be interwoven throughout the wool to add detail to the design.
