Seneh Kilim 160cm x 120cm / 5’3” x 4’11”
Seneh Kilim made in Iran. The Seneh kilims are distinctive Kurdish tribal patterns that have not changed over the years. These kilims are a fine quality flat weave. These rugs are reversible and the yarns used are fine and hardwearing. Colours are bright and strong with small intricate patterning, often contrasting in colours and forming borders around the distinctive shaped motifs that often but not always, emanate from central diamond shaped medallion motif.
Kilim or Kelims are also known as flat weaves because they are created with a technique called ‘weft wrapping’. Some are old tribal designs, still being woven just as each tribe’s original ancestors made them.
The methods of kilim weaving has remained unchanged over centuries. The vertical warp threads are fixed and they become the foundation of the kilim. Coloured wool yarns are woven in and out of the warps to produce a design which is invariably geometric in style.
Being so reasonably priced, as well as hard-wearing and sometimes reversible, makes kilims popular for those who appreciate a lively ethnic style and are very good for those on a budget. They also look great as walls hangings.
