Kilims

 

 

Kilim (also: Kelim, Gelim, Gilim) is a pile-less, flat weave rug in which pattern is formed by the wefts, which completely conceal the warps. We stock a large selection of Afghan vegetable-dye pieces in a variety of sizes. 


Vegetable Dyes are derived from plant material like madder root, indigo, milk- weed, pomegranate, osage and cutch.


Shiraz rugs and kilims are knotted in the province of Fars in southwest of Iran, whose capital city is Shiraz, on the site of the ancient city of Persepolis. The rugs were originally knotted by nomads, but nowadays most of them are resident in smaller villages in the province. Shiraz patterns are typical for nomads with motifs of simple geometric figures. The base colour is often red and the motifs have different blue nuances. There are also stylised flower and bird mo- tifs. The settled tribal weavers tend to mimic Kashgai, Khamseh, Afshar, Abadeh and Luri designs.
