Kelim or Kilim?

Both names, Kelim or Kilim, refer to the same type of woven rug. The different names and spellings may vary from country to country and language to language. This is not uncommon for carpets, as the Ziegler oriental carpet was originally known as the Chobi carpet, while later it was renamed Ziegler carpet by western carpet traders. So it is not surprising that carpet dealers in different countries spell the name Kilim or Kelim rug differently. It is important to note that there is no difference between Kilim or Kelim rug. Kilim rugs are mainly produced in Afghanistan, Turkey, Iran and Central Asia. These rugs are made using a weaving technique that produces a thin, lightweight, double-sided carpet. Kelim rugs do not have a knotted surface. The patterns and colour combinations of Kilim reflect cultural and artistic traditions, capturing the heritage and traditions of the countries where the rugs are woven. Kilim is hardwearing and easy to clean and maintain. Thanks to their versatility and light weight, Kilim are perfect for use as wall rugs, tablecloths, cushion covers or even as bag covers. In recent years, Kilim rugs have become immensely popular in the interior design sector. Their vibrant colours and bold patterns can add elegance and warmth to homes.

Cleaning instructions for Kilim rugs

Cleaning Kilim rugs does not require excessive expertise. Minor dirt can be easily removed with a slightly damp cloth or with a store-bought carpet cleaning foam suitable for cleaning wool rugs. However, if there is more serious dirt, it is recommended to consult a professional to clean it. Kilim rugs should be cleaned on the lowest setting of the vacuum cleaner, as the weave does not retain dust particles. Many people have the old custom of suspending the Kilim rug and hitting it with a dedusting stick to get rid of the dust. But this is a misconception! This method can damage hand woven Kilim rug, indeed any carpet.
