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.
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 checkered pattern is impressive due to its contrasts and yet it is unobtrusive. Lovers of symmetry and structure will love this rug.
The color of this [region of origin/design] ist off white.
The pile of this Kilim Bag is made of cotton. The cotton plant is cultivated in most countries that produce rugs and is therefore very popular in rug production.
