Vintage Wool  Kilim Rug

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

The weave is almost identical to modern kilims and has about fourteen threads of warp and sixteen threads of weft to the inch. The pattern colors consist of blue, brown, beige, grey, peachy, and black.

The significant difference between a kilim area rug and a carpet or a pile rug is that. In contrast, 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 various colored wefts and warps, thus creating what is known as a flatweave.

100% Wool and Hand-knotted.
