Kilim (or also Kelim; in Turkish: kilim, from the Persian gilim: 'roughly woven cover'): it is the most famous handmade and smoothly woven oriental carpet variety. Kilim is also the name of the weaving technique itself, which consists of creating the pattern with the weft threads, that are spun more loosely than the warp and that cover it fully, once they are packed on top of each other. When using this technique, which exists in several versions, the weft does not pass through the whole width of the carpet, but is reversed when one wishes to change the colour. To change the colour, one makes a vertical opening, a slit, which should not be so long as to compromise the sturdiness of the whole and which is often moved to the side for this very reason. That creates the characteristic diagonal staircase patterns. Most of the weaves are equilateral and the ends of the threads are hidden. The Anatolian kilims often have free threads on the 'back side' and are generally woven in two lengths because of the small size of the looms (with a continuity of the patterns on each part so that they can be sewn together). The patterns are traditional and have not been influenced by European styles. Extensive weaving of kilims is common notably in the Taurus mountains, in Turkey, in the Caucasus and the in north west and the south of Iran.
Imported in the '80s.
