What is exactly kilim?

Kilims are ideally suited in stylish, minimalist environments. They also look befitting in many homes thanks to a wide range of applications. Many people like to hang up their kilims on the wall instead of a picture or use them as bedspreads to create an oriental atmosphere in the home. A great advantage with a kilim is that some varieties are double sided and can be turned, which increases their lifespan.

Afghan kilims are produced only on the household looms in a very traditional way. Handspun wool is used and the colouring of the yarn comes mainly from plants and minerals that contribute to the natural and beautiful hues in the carpets. The choice of materials gives kilims a long life.
