Kilim rugs are cherished works of art and functional floor coverings and blankets that have stood the test of time for centuries. They originate from various regions of the world, including the Middle East, Central Asia and North Africa. Each kilim tells a unique story of cultural heritage and traditional weaving techniques.
Kilims are made using a flatweave technique in which virgin sheep's wool is tightly woven together. The result of this method is a rug with vivid patterns that can usually be used on both sides.
The art of kilim weaving is passed down or learned from generation to generation, and skilled weavers devote their time and expertise to create these masterpieces.
Even today, kilim rugs continue to fascinate home decor enthusiasts. They are versatile and durable due to the flat weave.
