Place of origin
Kilims (also Qilim) have traditionally been produced for personal use only. Nomads and farmers used and still use their kilims as rugs on the floor, but also as tent or wall hangings, blankets, pillows or, like this Kelim, as transport bags. This Kelim bag has probably been woven as a saddle bag for donkeys, camels or bicycles. If you don't have a donkey or camel, you can use the bag on your bike or for storing your newspapers and magazines; there are no boundaries for your imagination.
Because kilims were and are constant companions in everyday life, the patterns, no matter how naïve they may seem, always carry a personal message and have a meaning for the weavers and their families.
Kilims are hand-woven and consist only of warp and weft threads, i.e. they do not have a thick, upwardly oriented pile. Kilims have the same pattern on both sides. The pattern is created by colored weft threads woven into the warp threads. For each new color, a new thread must be used in each row. The ends of the threads are worked in as well.
In Europe, kilims from Turkey, the Caucasus region, Iran, Afghanistan and the Turkmen cultural area are particularly well-known and popular. In fact, in all countries where rugs are knotted, rugs are also hand-woven. This old Kilim Bag is more than 40 years old and a true collector's item.
The abstract, geometric composition creates the simple elegance of this Kilim Bag. The pattern flatters the design of the room and does not take the attention away from its furniture, decoration and architectural elements. It blends in fantastically with any surroundings and subtly complements the interior design of a room..
The straight stripes of this Kilim Bag organize and structure the pattern.
br /> The repeating elements in the center field of this Kilim Bag 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 edge of this rug is decorated with a hint of border.
The background of this Kilim Bag is dark blue. The border is dark blue.
The pile of this Kilim Bag 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.
