Story Behind the Art
Bold, distinctive patterns; brilliant colors; affordability-these are some of the characteristics that explain the overwhelming popularity of the exquisite, flatwoven textiles from the Near and Far East known as kilims. Kilim designs are made by interweaving the variously colored wefts and warps, thus creating what is known as a flatweave. Kilim patterns are created by winding the weft threads, which are colored, backwards and forwards around pairs of warp threads. The motifs on kilims woven in this way are constrained to be somewhat angular and geometric. Kilims are prized by collectors for the crispness of their decoration.
