What is kilim?
A kilim is a traditional handwoven tapestry that is often produced and used in Turkey (mostly Anatolia), Iran, Azerbaijan, Afghanistan, Pakistan, and Turkic countries of Central Asia.
Material and Technique:
Although the techniques and motifs vary based on the region these kilims are made, most Anatolian (Turkish) kilims are slit woven. Anatolian (Turkish) kilim is mostly woven with hemp, cotton and also wool threads. Because wool threads can make it difficult to wear (can be itchy and too hot in the summer), our bags are not woven with wool.
** Anatolia is the region between the Black and Mediterranean seas and has been one of the greatest crossroads for many ancient civilizations and an ancient trade route between the East and the West. Today, many of the shapes and symbols found in Turkish kilim can still be traced back to these ancient times. The bright colors and diverse motifs are still a big part of Turkish kilim art, which can be attributed to the region’s colorful and often complex past as well as its unique stories.
