Rug and Kilim

Weaving is an amazing craft which utilizes beautiful wooden tools: looms, shuttles, frames and more.

Looking at traditional textiles throughout the world is also a way to aesthetically define culture, geography, and social structure. 

A carpet is a textile floor covering typically consisting of an upper layer of pile attached to a backing. The pile was traditionally made from wool, but since the 20th century, synthetic fibers such as polypropylene, nylon or polyester are often used, as these fibers are less expensive than wool. The pile usually consists of twisted tufts that are typically heat-treated to maintain their structure. The term carpet is often used in a similar context to the term rug, but rugs are typically considered to be smaller than a room and not attached to the floor.

A Kilim rug is different from a traditional rug due to the weave used to produce it. Kilim rugs are traditional, hand-woven rugs that are flat-woven and because of this, have no pile. ... Kilim rugs are formed by flat weaving with two sets of wool ropes.

The rug is thick in nature and so has a pile height. Kilim flatweave rugs are usually inexpensive. Expensive, and considered as serious investment. Have rough texture as they do not have pile height.

Kilims are produced by tightly interweaving the warp and weft strands of the weave to produce a flat surface with no pile. Kilim weaves are tapestry weaves, technically weft-faced plain weaves, that is, the horizontal weft strands are pulled tightly downward so that they hide the vertical warp strands.
