Kilim Collection

History of Kilim Rugs

The word "Kilim" originated from the Persian word "gelim", which means "to spread roughly". Kilim rugs originated in Turkey and dates back to the ancient times - during the eleventh century A.D. Traditionally, a Kilim rug is not only used for interior decor. It is a popular dowry item given to brides and it is also used for religious purposes by serving as a prayer rug. But more than the practical functionality of Kilims, these rugs are a form of art which carries a piece of cultural heritage, tradition and self expression. Kilims are rich masterpieces, with deep symbolisms that are integrated within their patterns.
