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 straight stripes of this Jajim Kilim organize and structure the pattern.
br /> The repeating elements in the center field of this Jajim Kilim rug have no specific center (so-called repeating pattern). The repeating pattern has a calming but not boring effect. Rugs with repeating patterns are also called patterned.
The background of this Jajim Kilim is light red.
This Jajim Kilim has had admirers before you. It was hand woven about 1950. It has been thoroughly cleaned and only partially restored condition but is in good condition. We have not completely restored this Jajim Kilim because we think it is as it is a special charm. If you would like, we will of course restore the rug further for you. We can restore almost any rug to an almost perfect condition.
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.
