Kilim is a kind of carpet made of wefts going over and under warps back and forth to create different designs.
Like tapestries, in kilims, wefts cover the warps completely, so we only see wefts on a kilim.
Warps are supported by a wooden or metal frame and are usually cotton or wool, but they can be of any material, for example silk.
Wefts are usually wool or silk.
Kilim designs are mostly geometric, but they can be found with floral, modern and even picture designs.
Kilims are made in many countries, but Persian kilims are the most popular around the world.
