Vintage Kilim 203 x 159cm


A kilim rug is identifiable for its complete lack of a hand-knotted pile. They are flat handwoven rugs demonstrating a multitude of different hand weave techniques depending on their place of origin. Most but not all types of Kilim are reversible and all are very hard-wearing. Our range of kilims includes Chobi Maimana Kilim (vegetable Dyed), Ghalmori, Mushwani, Barjasta, Qala-e-Now, Adraskan Herat and Saghari. To make a kilim, the weaver uses a loom rather like a conventional carpet loom. The warp threads are set on the loom becoming the foundation of the Kilim. The weaver will weave coloured yarns usually wool, in and out of the warps, to produce a design. Woven in wool with no pile, it makes a durable decoration for the floor or wall.
