Hand Woven Kilim Rugs

Hand Woven Kilim Rugs

Hand woven Kilim rugs are flat-woven carpets or rugs produced from the Balkans to Pakistan. Kilims can be purely decorative or can function as prayer rugs. Modern kilims are popular floor-coverings in Western households.

Kilims are produced by tightly interweaving the warp and weft strands of the weave to produce a flat surface with no pile.

The weft strands, which carry the visible design and color, are almost always wool, whereas the hidden warp strands can be either wool or cotton. The warp strands are only visible at the ends, where they emerge as the fringe. This fringe is usually tied in bunches, to ensure against loosening or unraveling of the weave.
