Place of origin

Bright colors and simple patterns: that's why kilims are loved all over the world. Kilims (also Kelim, Qilim) have traditionally been produced for personal use only. Nomads and farmers not only used and still use their kilims as rugs on the floor, but also as tent or wall hangings, blankets, pillows or bags. Because kilims were constant companions in everyday life, the patterns, however naive they may seem, always carried a personal message and had meaning for the weavers and their families.

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, in which rugs are knotted, also they are also hand-woven.

Patterns

The straight stripes of this Kilim organize and structure the pattern.
br /> The surface of this Kilim has a flecked effect. The color changes and light-dark shades of the pile yarn run across the length of the rug, making the colors shimmer and making the rug impervious to dirt. Because of these so-called color jumps Abrash the rug appears more lively. The flecking is the result of the wool of this Kilim being hand-spun. During dyeing, the natural dyes are absorbed differently.

The repeating elements in the center field of this 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 pile is a plain dark red. The simple design is understated, but can also provide a great design accent. The monochrome appearance of this rug fits perfectly in any environment.

Material

Kilims are hand-woven and are made of warp and weft threads only, i.e. they do not have a thick, upward pointing pile. Kilims have the same pattern on both sides and can, therefore, be used on both sides. The pattern is created by weaving colored weft threads into warp threads. For each new color a new thread must be used in each row. The thread ends are worked in as well.

The weft threads of this kilim rug are made of hand-spun sheep's wool dyed with vegetable dyes. To produce the yarn for the weaving of the rug, sheep are shorn and their wool cleaned, combed and finally spun. After spinning, the wool of the Kelim rugs is dyed with natural dyes through a complex process. Because of this traditional process, the pile of kilim rugs appears dry and slightly fuzzy. The warp threads of this kilim are made of wool.

The colors of this carpet change depending on which side it is viewed from. It depends on whether the light falls on the line or against the line of the pile. We have therefore taken pictures of this rug from different perspectives.
