Kilim, is of Turkish origin, denoting a flat woven pile using fewer textiles, whose many variations share a common heritage and are practiced all across Turkey, the Balkans, and throughout the Arab World. The lightweight weave makes these rugs perfect for use in the hot summer months and is embraced by tribal weavers. Kilim rugs are a startling contrast to their kin Berber rugs, which will be found adorning the tents of tribes in the desert. These thinner rugs lend themselves to the hotter climates and can be used to create entire room carpets.
