A kilim is a flat-woven rug that is traditionally made in many parts of the world, including the Middle East, North Africa, the Balkans, and Central Asia. Unlike pile rugs, which have raised surfaces created by individual knots, kilims are produced by tightly interweaving the warp (vertical) and weft (horizontal) threads.
Kilims are known for their vibrant colors, bold geometric patterns, and intricate designs. They are often made using techniques such as slit-weave, where the weft threads are passed through openings in the warp to create the pattern. Kilims can be used for various purposes, including as floor coverings, wall hangings, or even as prayer rugs in some cultures.
These textiles have cultural significance and are often created by skilled artisans using traditional methods that have been passed down through generations. Kilims are valued for their beauty, craftsmanship, and versatility, and they have gained popularity in interior design for their unique aesthetic appeal.
