What are Modern Kilim Rugs?
Modern Kilim Rugs are made using centuries old dyeing and weaving techniques that would match our present day’s design approach. Colors, motifs and combinations of shapes are designed so that these woven textiles can easily be used in the modern home. In the making of these kilims natural wool and cotton dyed with natural dyes are used. Once the wool is extracted it is cleaned and then made into bundles to be handspun. This way the fibers in the strands stay intact. Machine woven wool breaks the fiber in the wool resulting in the curving of the wool. This is the reason that handspun wool preserves its colors and shine for a much longer time than machine spun wool. Kilim rugs that are made fully of natural materials have various color combinations and bold motifs. Kilim rugs use repeating geometric such as square, rectangle, triangle, circle, polygon, crystal, star, straight line and zig zag creating a feeling of infinity in the design. There are also modern rugs that reinterpret old designs in contemporary style.
Modern Kilim Rugs are one of the many choices that work great in the modern home as they have modern designs and they are made of fully natural materials.
