Kilim carpets are flat weave rugs -- they have no pile, so their pattern is achieved merely by tightly weaving different colors through the weft and the warp. Kilim are most closely associated with geometric designs because diagonal patterns strengthen the rug. They are reversible, and thus, quite versatile. They are popular as pillows, wall hangings, bench coverings, and for fashion statements as bags.
We are always happy to collaborate with you on a custom carpet that meets all your specifications...and your wildest dreams! Of course, it will be woven on our very own looms with the best materials under the supervision of our experts.

Afghan rugs, produced in Afghanistan, are among the most unique within their origins. The weavers of the cultural melting pot of Afghanistan, Balouch, Turkmen, Kazakh and Uzbek come together, each bringing something unique from their countries of origin. There are a plethora of designs, with their use of intricate elephant’s foot guls, vivid reds, ornamental borders and decorative end pieces providing a level of stylistic continuity. Using natural dyes, tribal weavers created a tremendous color palette of red hues that range from deep aubergine brown to warm burnt orange. These vibrant colors are traditionally paired with clear blue and ivory accents.
There are an abundance of versatile motifs that can be found throughout the different styles of rugs. From medallions, guls and serrated stars, these design elements produced grand repeating patterns. Set against a monochromatic field or used to form an impressive tile patter, Afghan rugs are united by their color palette and frequent use of guls and repeating motifs, while displaying many subtle differences from tribe to tribe and between ethnic groups. The saturated colors and bold, cultural designs featured in antique Afghan carpets make them spectacular statement pieces that can perfectly complement a variety of interior styles. Whether it is a Bokara rugs, or Turkoman rug, you are sure to find the right carpet that will suit your design elements and blend with your modern decor.
