The kilim is a simple fabric with a warp and stretch. Basically it is distinguished by not having “hairs” like carpet.
They were born about 3,500 years ago in Central Asia, from where they extended to Eastern Europe, North Africa and later Western Europe. They are considered, therefore, the oldest carpets of the world. The nomadic origin of those who used it in the antiquity, made that they had a special feature in the weave of warp, flat and without knots, to avoid the passage of the sand of the desert, since they accompanied their owners like suitcases or like divisions in The stores they put together on trips. The designs were full of symbolism, desires, messages or orders for example the S-shaped motifs heralded a happy event. In general they were made without a previous pattern that gave them spontaneity and exclusivity to each piece, the current ones do not respect these traditions but maintain the agile spirit of the original fabric.
