Kilim Rugs: Perfection in Each Knot!
Kilim is a Turkish word which means a pileless textile. Simply put, they are a flat tapestry-woven carpet. They are made in North Africa, the Balkans, the Caucasus, Iran, Pakistan, Afghanistan, Central Asia, China, and Turkey being the eminent hub.
Kilim unleashes the Oriental beauty that was once found in the palaces and luxurious structures. However, these rugs are more than beauty.
They are known for their practicality as they provide warmth and comfort as they are woven entirely from wool. Wool also makes them supple durable and easy to handle. Apart from being used as floor coverings, they are available as hangings, saddles, bench or bed covering. Kilim rugs are available in a range of colors including blue, red, brown and other shades.
WHAT MAKES KILIM RUGS STAND OUT OF THE REST
Although they are generally included in the category of oriental rugs, their features make them stand out of the rest.
For example, a pile rug features individual short strands of different colors being knotted onto the warps and held together by pressing the wefts. Kilim designs, on the other hand, are woven by interweaving the variously colored warps and wefts, thus, the creation is known as a flatweave.
Kilims are made with the slitweave technique. The slit is the gap left between two blocks of color. The weft is returned around the last warp in a color area while the weft of the adjacent color is directed towards the adjacent warp.
Weavers hold the weft tightly for two reasons. Firstly, it covers and often supports diagonal patterns. Secondly, it strengthens the structure of the rug with vertical slits. This way, the technique lets the weavers produce bold and sharp patterns than a plain weave.
Surprisingly, the manufacturing of these beautiful rugs only requires a few materials. Generally, they are made with simple tools like a loom, a shuttle, a beating comb, and a knife/scissors. Cotton, animal hair and silks are not used more often. However, wool is the primary and the only material used to weave a Kilim rug. It may be used with other options like cotton.
Sometimes, Kilim rugs are decked up with beads, gold or silver threads, and small decorative pieces.
