Turkish Kilim Rug

The kilim also originated in the Anatolia area of Turkey. Situated between the Black and Mediterranean seas, Anatolia is often thought of as one of the great crossroads between ancient civilizations. That’s why the bright colors and diverse designs still found in Turkish kilim can largely be attributed to the region’s colorful and often convoluted past. And many of the shapes and symbols found in Turkish kilim can still be traced to these ancient times.

Turkish kilim is by far the most used and highly regarded method of weaving kilim rugs, traditionally made of wool, and handmade, so each is unique, durable and no pile means that the treads have not been cut and that the fabric is reversible.
