The Technique: Kilim rugs are flat-woven rugs. Unlike high-pile, knotted rugs, kilims are made by interweaving the warp and weft (thread and yarn) on punja looms using traditional techniques that have been passed down from generation to generation. Traditional tools like a beating comb are used to ensure a tightly-woven rug. Our kilim rugs are entirely handcrafted and woven on traditional looms in a painstaking process that lasts over a period of several days. The end result is a rug that simply takes your breath away.
Why We Love Kilims: The rugs’ flat-woven quality means less shedding and more enjoyment underfoot! Kilims typically have eye-catching geometric designs and striking color palettes, enhancing the look of any space.
Room Match: Flat-woven kilim rugs are great for eclectic rooms that mix different colors and textures; vintage spaces that need a grounding, finishing touch; rooms that need a pop of color or pattern and some verve; cool bohemian spaces; subdued and muted areas of the home that could use a spark of energy.
