flat tapestry-woven carpets or rugs produced from the Balkans
to Pakistan. Kilims can be purely decorative or can function
as prayer rugs.
The name 'kilim' or 'kelim'
is Turkish, and comes from the Persian gelim 'to spread roughly',
which is probably of Mongolian origin.
Kilims are produced
by tightly interweaving the warp and weft strands of the weave
to produce a flat surface with no pile.
Our Kilims are all
handmade in Turkey and many are semi-antique and one of a kind.
