Once you look at the kilim you can greatly realize that it is not just a carpet. It is a deep story expressing the intense thoughts of the Anatolian weavers through the language of kilims and their motifs.
Such motifs symbolize different aspects of the weaver’s life like protection against evil eye, long life, power, marriage and much more.
Stories and wishes are weaved on kilims making them special and more interesting.
Handmade rugs are made up of two various techniques:
Tufting is a technique of punching yarn pile through a base fabric backing. Tufted rugs tend to have a sturdy, comfortable pile, which is either left looped or cut.
Woven rugs are made on looms by lacing together the yarns and the backing into one product. Woven rugs tend to be more luxurious and higher quality than tufted rugs. They are known for the long life span and can last 20 to 30 years, or longer! Some examples of woven rugs are kilims. Most rugs from Anatolia utilize the symmetrical Turkish double knot.
Anatolian kilims are not just rugs to be commercially sold. However these rugs are weaved with passion by Anatolian girls (brides) reflecting their expectations and hopes to the upcoming life they are waiting for with their beloved one.
In addition to its traditional story kilims are made up of natural materials (sheep wool) and natural dye.
