The art of Kilim weaving is among the first arts and crafts of scattered tribes in Iran; With a history that goes far beyond carpet weaving, it can be considered as the origin of carpet weaving in Iran.
Originally used as rugs, Kilims have traditional designs similiar to what you can see on Persian carpets. Fiber used in kilim weaving is of greater thickness comparing to the material used in fabric texture. The lively shades in Kilims come from perfectly natural colors, dyed in the hands of expert weavers. The whole process of making a Kilim is done by hand, and the natural colors add even more to the value of the work.
Nowadays, the artists have found new and creative use for Kilim. They use this Persian handicraft and its lovely designs to create lovely bags, shoes, clothes and even jewelry.
