Jijim Rugs

Cicim, also spelled jijim, a rug like spread or hanging handmade in Anatolia, composed of variously coloured strips woven in ordinary cloth weave on a narrow loom and sewn together.

The patterns are usually provided by brocading while on the loom, but certain details may be embroidered later. Peculiar elements, such as feathers, may be incorporated in the brocading. Unless silk is used in the decoration, JiJim Rugs are normally all wool. The technique appears also in other parts of the Middle East

CICIM or JIJIM - The extra-weft semi-wrap float is a technique in which additional colored yarns are interlaced into the regular system of warp and weft in mostly balanced or weft- faced plain ground weave. Since the finished pattern forms solid lines over the plain ground weave, it gives the appearance of couched satin stitch and has even been erroneously referred to as a type of embroidery applied to plain weave flat- woven rugs.

It is thought that the term cicim is derived from the Turkish word cicim (small and delightful) plus the first person possessive suffix im In Iran the word jajim or jejim is used to describe one variety of warp-faced weave which produces narrow strips that are sewn together after they have been woven.
