Kilims represent symbols of family tradition and tribal identity. No two hand-woven Kilims are exactly the same color in and size, which make each unique—a virtual piece of nomadic flat woven art, which historically was often part of a bride’s dowry. Weaving techniques vary from region to region. Only women do the weaving and generally on horizontal looms. It can take up to one year with four weavers to complete a larger Kilim. Antique Kilims are becoming increasingly difficult to find as collectors take down supply. Most Kilims are made from 100% handspun indigenous wool with natural vegetal dyes and hand woven on family looms.
