Tribal Traditions for Today's Unique One of a Kind Interiors

Kilim is the Turkish word for a flat weave rug, or a rug with no pile. Because of the manufacturing method,   flat weave rugs  are usually produced more quickly than hand knotted rugs.

The beauty of these area rugs is revealed by the fact that they do not display the thick pile found in hand knotted rugs. Instead, these area rugs show a flat textural look.

Like hand knotted rugs, flat weave rugs are woven on a foundation made up of cotton warps (rope) strung on a frame called a loom. Instead of looping wool around the warps and creating a thick wool pile, the yarns are threaded back and forth covering all the cotton thread like a blanket or tapestry. This weaving process creates a very flat pile.

Because of the manufacturing method, flat weave rugs are usually produced more quickly than hand knotted rugs. These area rugs show a flat textural look.


Uses for   flat weave rugs  are many – wall hangings, room dividers, curtains, table cloths, stair runners, cushions, furniture covers, bed boards and of course rugs.

Guide

Placing the correct size rug in your space is as important as choosing the right color or pattern. A rug that it is too small will shift the balance of the room unfavorably. A rug that is too big, especially in open floor plans, may put the area designations off. There are a few rules of thumb, but a picture says it better. Use these handy guides by Interior Designer Lisa Ferguson to make the best choice.
