Persian Vintage Kilim Wool Rug
The term ‘kilim’ originates from the Persian gelīm where it means ‘to spread roughly. Like pile carpets, kilim have been produced since ancient times.
The weave is almost identical with that of modern kilims, and has about fourteen threads of warp and sixteen threads of weft to the inch. The pattern colours consist of navy blue, orange, brown, beige, burgundy and black.
The major difference between a kilim area rug and a carpet or a pile rug is that whereas the design visible on a pile rugs is made by individual short strands of different color being knotted onto the warps and held together by pressing the wefts tightly, kilim designs are made by interweaving the variously colored wefts and warps, thus creating what is known as a flatweave.
