The kilim is a sturdy, flat-woven rug made of wool and cotton. Our rugs are made on wooden looms using the slit weaving technique, in which dyed sheep’s wool is woven into a base of cotton.

The handwork is always visible. The kilim is not a uniform machine-made product, it does not have perfect straight lines and angles. The imperfections and irregularities of this woven rug, the „beauty of imperfection“, are a testament to its authenticity.

Sheep’s wool is easy to care for and stain resistant due to its surface structure. The natural fat content of sheep’s wool surrounds the fibres. The kilim should be vacuumed regularly with the correct attachment (without a brush). The kilim should be vacuumed regularly with the correct attachment (without a brush). It is better to vacuum more often, but at half power. If cleaning is necessary, we recommend carpet cleaning or hand washing (max. 30 degrees) with a wool re-greasing detergent. Stain removal: Immediately dab the affected area with warm running water, never rub. Use a sponge and a little liquid soft soap.

With us you can pay with common payment methods, such as credit card, debit card, PayPal & Apple Pay.
