Handmade Vintage Beautiful Kilim Rug 5×9.2ft (152x280cm)

-45%

The term ‘kilim’ originates from the Persian gelīm which it means ‘to spread roughly. Like pile carpets, kilim has been produced since ancient times.

The weave is almost identical to that of modern kilims and has about fourteen threads of warp and sixteen threads of weft to the inch. The pattern colors 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 rug is made by individual short strands of different colors 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.

100% Wool and Hand-knotted.
