Kilims are woven rather than knotted and so are thinner and flatter than rugs. They feature traditional designs and are hand-made by nomadic Baluch artisans, from the remote tribal areas of North-West Afghanistan. Baluchi crafts are unique and less uniform than professionally made rugs. It is often difficult to find two that are exactly alike. The kilims are made from wool collected from their own flocks of sheep. These kilims are becoming less common to find – they are truly unique tribal furnishings. Traditionally, Baluchi crafts were not made for commercial purposes and were often given as gifts or traded for needed supplies. Other spellings may include: Kelim. Learn more about our rugs here.
