The kilim is made from wool drunk the edges are made of cotton. The kilim, also spelled klim or kelim (word of Turkish origin), is a carpet devoid of velvet because it is embroidered instead of knotted. The kilim is manufactured in various cities of Anatolia and Iran (especially Sanandaj). Its name, derived from the Persian gelim, is used to designate a flat-wool carpet found mainly in the Near East, in the Caucasus and in Central Asia, and which came into being about 10 000 years as evidenced by many vestiges. They can also be made of cotton or goat hair. Until very recently, kilims were not made for a commercial purpose and therefore retained their authenticity. They represent both the memory and the identity of the sedentary, nomadic and semi-nomadic peoples who weave them. Each tribe and each village has its own style: shimmering colors or sober, complex or purified decorations according to the regions. Their motifs constitute a form of symbolic writing inherited from ancient Shamanist beliefs. The carpet patterns are geometric, the tones are ethnic and the texture is fine. Their rendering is more flexible and lighter. Originally, the kilim was used as a cover and to protect the ground from mosques and yurts. Nowadays, it can be used on the floor, on the walls, in the couch, on the headboard or in curtains.
