The Pattern History
Kilim rugs are of Turkish origin and the name is used to describe a pileless rug, made using a flatweaving technique. Created by artisans for thousands of years, the explorer Mark Aurel Stein found kilim rugs dating to the fourth or fifth century, in Hotan China, but they remain a favourite floor covering in homes today. Kilim weavers often favour diagonal, geometric patterns and can include symbols within the motif.
