The history of Kilim is rich, nuanced and complex dating back to eight and ninth century circa. Originating as pile-less textile hand woven by interlacing colored warp and weft of basic animal fibers in the regions of Turkey (Anatolia and Thrace), North Africa, the Balkans, the Caucasus, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Central Asia and China, Kilims now are extremely popular for their versatility as well as their lineage. Essentially Kilims were meant for home use from prayer rugs and tent hangings to wedding trousseau and seating mats in tribal households. Kilims apart from being multi-utilitarian were also cultural artefacts through which the weavers expressed their thoughts, aspirations and feelings.So, the colorful designs and intricate patterns that adorn these kilims have inherent symbolism and significance and become a big draw for rug aficionados. The main motifs used in the kilim belong to 5 basic categories of animals, plants, geometric, symbolic and mixed motifs in endless combinations. ##xA0; In each kilim there is a symmetrical design that has a mirror image down the center line.
Being lighter than regular pile rugs, less expensive and exquisitely versatile, Kilims are more popular than ever before. While there may be a wide variety of Kilims available in the market, it is wise to be discerning.
