Place of origin
Kilims (also Qilim) have traditionally been produced for personal use only. Nomads and farmers used and continue to use their kilims as rugs on the floor, but also as tent or wall hangings, blankets, pillows or bags. Jajim kilims are somewhat thinner than kilims and are therefore also used as bedspreads or throws.
Because kilims were constant companions in everyday life, the patterns, however naïve they may seem, always carry a personal message and have a meaning for the weavers and their families. This old Jajim Kilim is more than 40 years old and a true collector's item.
The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Jajim Kilim. The pattern flatters the design of the room and does not take the attention away from its furniture, decoration and architectural elements. It creates a pleasant atmosphere without dominating the style of the room.
The straight stripes of this Jajim Kilim organize and structure the pattern.
br />The color of this [region of origin/design] ist dark red.
The pile of this Jajim Kilim has been hand-knotted from high-quality virgin wool. Virgin wool is obtained through the gentle shearing of sheep. Virgin wool is a sustainable, natural raw material with a number of impressive properties; due to the wool's natural fat content, the surface repels water droplets and is thus naturally impervious to dirt. Wool also offers excellent thermal insulation, has a regulating effect on living climate and muffles sound.
