Kilims are flat tapestry-woven carpets or rugs which are made in various parts of the world. They have been around for centuries now. Their colors, patterns, and material help indicate what region of the world they come from. The making of these beautiful rugs are handmade and are very time consuming. The original use of kilims were to help insulate people against the climatic variations of their homelands. Today, we use them as decorative rugs, pillows, bags, and furniture. No kilim is ever duplicated and is always one of a kind!
