Kilims are flat weave rugs originally produced in a village or tribal
environment. The designs of kilims tend to be geometric often
incorporating various symbolic motifs. A prominent characteristic of kilim
rugs is the slits along the warp of the rug wherever there is a change of
color. Kilims were used to make many functional things such as storage
bags, salt bags, grain bags, saddle blankets, pillows, even cradles .
Kilims were also woven as treasures to be dowry pieces or to mark the
birth of a child. These were saved or used only on special occasions.
