Anatolian Kilim Rugs from India Craft Bazaar

Anatolian Kilim is a Kilim which is a word of Turkish origin, denotes a textile produced flat-weaving techniques that have a common or closely related heritage and are practiced in the geographical area that includes parts of Turkey (Anatolia and Thrace), North Africa, the Balkans, the Caucasus, Iran, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Central Asia and China.

Difference Between a Carpet and a Kilim

The major difference between an Anatolian Kilim area rug and a carpet or a pile rug is that whereas the design visible on a pile rugs is made by individual short strands of different colour being knotted onto the warps and held together by pressing the wefts tightly, kilim designs are made by interweaving the variously coloured wefts and warps, thus creating what is known as a flat-weave.

Recommended Applications

Moderate traffic areas of your home or office are suitable for Anatolian Kilim Area Rugs. These fabrics can be washed with lukewarm water and  mild soap solutions, although regular vacuuming and quick spot treatment of spills with soap water and spot drying will increase its life

What’s Special about our Classic Turkish Design Range

An Anatolian Kilim is a flat-woven rug from Anatolia region of Turkey. Although all kinds of flat woven oriental rugs are sometimes mentioned as Killim, a true killim must be woven in the slit-tapestry technique, primarily from the wools of sheep, goats or camels. These rugs are prized for  their rich, earthy hues from natural dyes, which are free from harmful chemicals.  These Anatolian kilims are characterised by bold abstract designs that have been translated as symbolic renderings of architectural, human, animal and floral motifs, some of which trace back to Neolithic times.  Our master craftsmen from the Mirzapur region of Uttar Pradesh in northern India have preserved the traditional kilim weaving techniques, brought to India by the Turkish emperors.  Government of India awarded Geographical Indication to Mirzapur weaver in 2013.

Care & Maintenance Tips

Please follow these simple guidelines to keep your rugs and carpet in good clean, in good shape and last long.

  1. Vacuum Cleaning: Regular vacuum cleaning is the best way to keep rugs clean and without odour or allergens as a result of daily use.  A vacuum with a spinning beater bar is fine, in fact it’s one of the best things you can do to keep your rug looking fine and protected from stains.  Vacuuming also helps polish the wool — giving it lustre and sheen and natural stain resistance.
  2. Spill Removal: The best way to remove spills is to act as and when it happens. First soak the spilled liquid off with an absorbent cloth, microfibre cloth or if nothing is available put lots of face tissues or paper napkins on it. If you feel the need to use soap, best rule of thumb, if you can’t use it on yourself, don’t use it on the rug.
  3. Protect from Direct Sunlight: Ultra violet rays in sunlight reacts with the natural dyes of the fibre and makes rugs look fade (sun burn). Hence, make sure rugs and carpets are not exposed to direct sunlight, use curtains or if the rug is in outdoor, cover it with an used bedsheets during the time of the day when direct sunlight falls on it
  4. Foot traffic and heavy furniture can change the texture of your carpets and rugs.  Shag carpeting, for example, can experience “blooming” caused by the untwisting or opening of the yarns.  You can use scissors to clip “tufts” that extend above the rest of the carpet pile, but never pull them out (if they have been pulled out, use a crochet needle to work them back into the backing of the carpet.  You can also use scissors to remove piling ,the formation of those tiny balls of fuzz on top of carpeting, and shading can sometimes be temporarily corrected by vacuuming in the same direction.
  5. Keep safe from moisture and water : Moisture and water are very bad for all sorts of carpets and rugs, especially the piles and tufted carpets, because water can accumulate under the backing, thereby creating mould growth and also damage floorings. If you suspect any wet part in your carpet, immediately reverse it to see if there is accumulated water underneath. Once can use desiccators available in market to keep near or under carpets to absolve moisture
  6. Storage: Best way to store carpets is to first cover the top with an old bed sheet and then roll up. Never try to fold a rug or carpet (unless it is flat cotton rug) as this may permanently damage its stricture

Rugs’ Trivia

The oldest example known in the history of hand-make rugs is the one which is exhibited in the St. Petersburg Hermitage Museum in Russia. This fantastic Altai rug was discovered by the Russian archaeologist Sergei Rudenko in the year 1949 and is known as the “Pazirik Rug”, woven around the 3rd century B.C. The majority of experts believe that there is a link between ancient Turkish culture and this particular rug; they also believe that the other items found in the Pazirik Tumulus have some connection to Turkish civilisation.
