Kilim (or Kelim, in Turkish: Kilim, from the Persian: Gilim; 'roughly-woven covering'), these are a variety of handmade Oriental carpets with the ones with a smooth weave being the most well-known. Kilim is also the name of the weaving technique itself, which involves creating the pattern with the weft threads which are are spun more loosely than those of the weft, then covering these entirely once they are knotted together. 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. The majority of the weaves are equilateral and the ends of their threads are hidden.The majority of the weaves are equilateral and the ends of their threads are hidden. The kilims of Anatolia 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 pattern on each part that allows both parts to 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.
With certificate.
