About Kilim carpets:
First woven in Persia thousands of years ago, kilim rugs have remained popular throughout the centuries. The rugs are woven as a tapestry, without the thick pile of other types of carpet.
A beautiful handmade rug is an important part of eastern culture and an exquisite symbol of enduring art.
For generations, woman in Turkey have been hand weaving beautiful KILIM rugs, some taking months or years to create. Kilims are not only traditional floor coverings, but TRIBAL ART that included tent decorations, grain bags, donkey bags, prayer rugs, as well as special rugs for ceremonial occasions. The very finest of these are woven for a woman’s marriage dowry; where she weaves symbols of her dreams and inspirations to create carpets that will represent her unique personality.
