About the kilims
The kilim is a flat fur textile, very characteristic of both Turkey and other eastern countries. The term kilim literally means '' does not mix colors ''. It is said to be the oldest carpet in the world. A kilim differs from a carpet in the sewing technique, since the kilim, due to the methodology of its creation, is made by the craftsman weaving the wool fibers, creating mosaics or geometric patterns so characteristic of this style.
The finishes of the kilims are very uniform due to the woolen fabrics. The patterns that are formed in this type of rugs are generally geometric, since they facilitate the manual work of the craftsman with the slit weaving technique, which is the one used in kilims and makes them so unique.
Durable and resistant, they are designed to be stepped on and walked frequently.
