Our kilim rugs are highly curated and represents many styles as well as nearly every major weaving center in the world. Multiple pieces from Esmaili Rugs have graced the homes of public figures, celebrities, professional athletes, and pillars of society.
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.

Kilim Rugs | Motifs & Symbols
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.
