Antique Kilim Rugs

Kilims are flat woven rugs or flat tapestry woven carpets, highly popular around the world. From Turkish origins to south Asian cultures Kilims have their roots deep in all generations. They are totally decorative and can also serve dual purpose of prayer rugs and normal area rugs. They are woven in neat geometric patterns and subtle colours are used to define it in a more definitive way. Western households love to use Kilims and rugs of the same category in their homes. The warmth that comes from these traditional rugs is simply unmatchable.

The patterns usually consist of narrow stripes of shades of blues, greens, brownish yellow and red with small geometric designs. These designs are centuries old designs giving them the ultimate antique look. It is specifically made that they appear flat and don’t produce a flat surface with no pile. Horizontal wefts strands are pulled tightly downwards so they hide the vertical warp strands.

The art of antique kilim weaving started from humble beginnings as a folk-weaving tradition in Turkey. Now it graces the most prestigious of collections.

Most of the Antique Kilim rugs can be classed as “slit woven” textiles because of the vertical weaving technique. Customers love the slits as they give a very sharp etched design that emphasizes the geometry of the weave.

Kilims are cheaper than pile rugs but this does not mean that they are not popular among people. Now these Kilims are designed by using the finest fabric and wool with nicer and attractive shades of colour and neat geometric patterns. The up gradation of the product has helped it in making a good market for it. Quality pieces of kilims actually demand high prices.

Currently Kilims have gained major popularity in US & Europe and have been rated as one of the best product to add beauty to your interior
