Modern Kilim Rugs
The word ‘kilim’ is of Turkish origin and it points to a woven textile that has no pile, used as a floor covering or wall hanging. As they are flat woven and they do not have a pile they are thinner. Hand woven kilim rugs are dyed with natural vegetable dyes and they carry symbolism used for generations in their regions. They are made of wool, goat hair or cotton. Kilim is one of the oldest types of woven textile. Handwoven kilim rugs are made in Central Asia, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Caucasus, China, North Africa, some parts of Europe and Turkey.
