Original textile guide: Why is kilim so popular?
Kilims are a special class of original textiles of Persian woven carpets dated to the 4th-5th centuries. Other Middle Eastern and North African countries, such as Morocco, also weave their own kilims. These carpets have a relatively flat surface and do not contain a nap.
Because of this, they seem thinner than other carpets. Kilims are usually presented in a wide range of colors.
Their difference is clear geometric patterns. Today kilims are used as floor carpets, in upholstery, on pillows and other products.
The original Oriental textiles harmoniously fit into the interior of the room.
Lint-free carpets glide easily. Spots and debris may appear in crowded places, so for such premises you should choose a kilim with bright and large patterns.

Most of the artwork in this house belongs to Western culture, but the ottomans, covered with kilim, say that a modern researcher lives in this house. The traditional interior of the room is diluted with exotic ottomans and pillows.
They give the room a special atmosphere.
