Kilim Rugs, Flatweave area rugs
Unlike an oriental rug
, or pile rug, the design on a kilim rug
is created by interweaving the different colored warps and wefts. Creating the pattern in this way produces a flatweave rug. Many kilim are also reversible rugs
due to the nature of their construction. True kilim have been produced in Turkey, Iran, the Caucasus, the Balkans and nearby geographic regions, often times to be used as prayer rugs. The light weight and durability of the kilim rug make these area rugs ideal for the traveler and for use as wall hangings, bench or divan coverings, or as a throw rug
. Often made of cotton, kilim may be constructed of a number of different materials. Rug Smart offers hundreds of different types of flatweave rugs in all styles and sizes. Browse through our selection of kilim area rugs to find the rug that will fit your home and style.
