Kilims bring the exotic of the Orient directly into your living room


Kelim is a foreign word for us. It comes from the Turkish "kilim", which actually means woven carpet. This name for the oriental rugs has prevailed in Europe. A kilim is a traditional carpet in the Orient, it is mostly smooth and in all cases handwoven. The homeland of kilim weaving is considered to be the countries of the Middle East, predominantly Afghanistan, Iran and others in the Caucasus. Originally kilims were hand woven in almost every family, as they were an important part of the dowry of young nomad women. They were and still are traditionally interesting patterned flatweaves whose front and back look the same way. Kilims are woven on small weaving looms made of wood according to a very complicated weaving technique. For a kilim to be finished, you have to work for days, even months, on the loom. So its manufacture also means a lot of effort, patience and perseverance.

Often you confuse kilim and Persian carpet and confuse the two terms. A Persian carpet is traditionally hand-knotted, it also has other patterns compared to kilim. But both kilim and Persian rug are absolute burners among carpet trends today.

Kilims are still traditionally woven from hand-spun wool. For their coloring one uses plant colors, which come from the close environment of the manufacturers. The art of weaving continues to live there. After months of work on the weaving chair, each piece is created, so it's a real one-off.
For the production of each kilim only high-quality natural products are used such as sheep's wool, goat's wool, hemp or angora wool. Today there are Kelims in different sizes and with different patterns. They can even be custom-made according to the individual wishes of the customer.
