History

Varied regional, environmental, religious, cultural, sociopolitical and socioeconomic conditions brought about the creation of kilim rugs in ancient Turkey. Many tribal and ethnic groups started making kilims and rugs. The nomadic Turkic people of medieval Seljuk period are credited with the beginning of this great tradition. The kilims of different regions of Turkey can be easily differentiated by their designs, patterns, cultural and geographical bias, symbolizations, and process of manufacture. The kilims were hand woven and were characterized by their exquisite craftsmanship. Modern weavers have admirably carried on this kilim making tradition of ancient Turkey and they are now both hand woven as well as machine made.

Technique

Wool is the material of choice for Turkish kilim. Cotton and silk are also used. Most rugs employ the double knot also called Turkish knot. All the knots are bound on two warps. This makes sure that the pile thread is tightly secured around two warps that finally result in a stronger and more elaborately designed rug. Wool pile on wool warp and weft is the most common technique of weave. Wool pile on cotton warp and weft and silk pile on silk warp and weft are also woven in large numbers.
