Kilim

Kilim refers to a rug or tapestry that has been constructed by the process of tightly flatweaving variously colored warp and weft yarns on a loom to create a flat surface with no pile. Originating in the countries of the former Persian Empire, kilims are primarily woven in either or both cotton or wool, and frequently feature geometric designs derived from ancient symbolism.
