Originally, the roots of the kilim rug go back to the nomadic people of the Middle East. They served and still serve the nomads not necessarily as rugs, but rather as blankets, saddle blankets, seat mats, or wall decorations. It is believed that the first carpets in history, several hundred years before Christ, corresponded in many ways to today’s kelim carpets. Since the original kilims are hand-woven, they also have a very important difference from knotted carpets. Knotting techniques have presumably only evolved from weaving techniques. Nowadays, kilims mostly originate from southern Iran or Afghanistan

Kilims are so-called flatweaves and look almost identical from the top and bottom. They can thus be used on both sides, which is a great advantage over other types of carpets. They also have very distinctive patterns and designs. Thanks to the weaving technique with warp and weft, the patterns are linear and geometric. When the design elements are pulled apart, small holes are visible between them, which also results from the weaving technique. Typical are strong colours that are extracted from plants and minerals like Persian carpets. Thus, original kelims from the Middle East are 100% natural products
