I have added these pages to my website to show you some of the common designs in Persian rugs.
One of the most common and ever so popular types of rugs are the handmade Kelim rugs from countries such as Iran, Morocco and Afghanistan where the traditional weaving techniques have remained virtually unchanged for centuries.
Modern Kelim Rugs & Contemporary Kilim Carpets
Kelim have been made in mostly tribal and mountain regions of Iran, Morocco and Afghanistan for centuries and while the designs and techniques are unique to each region, the basic concept is shared with all. A Kelim is basically handmade rug where the knots are combined with the cotton foundation and the pile is left out, which makes the Kelim rugs perfect as basic floor rugs, wall art or as accent decor in homes.
In recent years, the Kelim rugs have become very popular with folks who are looking for modern or contemporary rugs for their homes and who also want fine pieces that are handmade and of a high quality. As a result of the many inquiries that we have had, we have searched for places where Kelim weavers are not only known for the quality and workmanship, but also have the ability to make some of the more interesting designs that are often found in mass produced commercial Kelim rugs. After many years of looking, we finally found two regions where all of our requirements for our own line of Kelim rugs are met and they are in the mountain regions of Afghanistan and Morocco.
Our modern Kelim rugs are mainly made by the Kelim weavers in Morocco and the designs and colors are a great match for those who are looking for the more modern style to suit their needs. The Moroccon Kelim rugs are known for the undyed colors and geometric designs.
In contrast to the fine modern Kelim rugs from Morocco are the contemporary Kelim rugs made by weavers in Afghanistan that are perfectly suited for those who are looking for colors and distinct pattern rarely found in handmade rugs. These contemporary Kelim rugs feature the same high quality that we look for in the Kelim rugs and are a recent addition that will stay updated with the ever changing decor ideas around the world.
