Go Global with Kilim Rugs in Dallas
More people are discovering the exotic allure of Kilim rugs in Dallas. Esteemed as some of the most beautifully woven, intricately designed rugs from the Middle East, Kilim rugs exemplify a Caucasus-made, tapestry technique presenting patterns created by horizontal wefts covering vertical warps. Since the Kilim technique of weaving makes it difficult to separate colors linearly and vertically, vintage Kilim rugs often have a crenelated or stepped appearance relying on vivid color effects, large geometric patterns and impressively striking images. Most Kilims utilize medallion-like designs or one grand design encompassing most of the rug.

Our curated selection of handwoven kilims hail from all around the world. Turkish flat-weave rugs and Swedish Rollakans are highly sought-after by connoisseurs, followed by Persian and Caucasian Soumak rugs. Attributed to their durability and versatility, these handwoven rugs can withstand foot traffic with proper maintenance. As much as kilims are favored on the floor, these nomadic textiles are used as a wall hanging, headboard tapestry, table cloth, bed coverlet, and recycled for upholstering chairs, benches, cushions, and pillow covers. Multiple pieces from our Kilim Collection have graced the homes of public figures and private members' clubs such as Soho House.

Curated Tribal Flatweave Carpets & Kilim Rugs in Dallas
Vintage kilim area rugs are adorned with a variety of fascinating motifs, such as the elibelinde, a widely implemented motif depicting a stylized female symbolizing fertility and motherhood. A wolf foot or wolf mouth motif reveals a weaver's desire to protect his family's herd of sheep, goats and cows from wolves and the deadly scorpion sting. Other motifs resembling amulets are meant to ward off bad luck from the “evil eye”. Birds, the yin yang symbol and Solomon's seal are other common good luck motifs adorning the tribal rugs in our vintage Kilims rugs collection. Read our Symbolism in Antique Rugs Blog to learn more.
