The variety of colours and sizes makes the Kilims very versatile and allows you to use them in any room you desire. These traditional Kilims are full of ethnic motifs and include a range of colours that are full of warmth and rich hues, which makes them ideal for making a house into a warm and inviting home.
How to care for your Kilim
-Generally Kilims are low maintenance and regularly vacuuming them will keep them looking their best. Frequent cleaning will also act as a protective measure again moths.
-It must be noted that a lower suction setting should be used and avoiding the fringe with the vacuum cleaner will stop it from getting torn.
-Never wash your kilim in a washing machine!
-If the colours start becoming dull, bring the shine back by adding a small cup of vinegar to a cool wash and brush over when fully dried out.
-Avoid placing Kilim in direct sunlight, unless fading is desired.
-Kilims are susceptible to damage from moisture so avoid placing them in environments with excess humidity and moisture such as bathroom and kitchens.
Our Kilims are perfect for adding real character and beautiful colour into your home, and would make a thoughtful and wonderful gift for anyone to receive and can be passed down throughout generations due to their historic significance.
