Kilim is a flat-woven rug (though because of the artful nature of the kilim, many are hung on the wall as show-pieces instead of being used as a floor-covering) made in several regions of the world, including Turkey, Persia, and the Caucasus.
Making a kilim is a highly regarded folk art; kilims that are handmade with natural dye and wool are the cultural norm. There is also a great deal of symbolism in the patterns used in each design. Some kilims are even used as Muslim prayer rugs. Because of the cultural aspects of these rugs, each region has its own traditions revolving around colors, styles, and patterns.
