Soft, slim and lightweight, the kilim is a very old kind of traditional rug which has always been popular among major contemporary designers. Originating in Anatolia, it is made of wool, more rarely in cotton, and is without velvet.
These highly symbolic motifs referred to certain shamanic beliefs. This kind of rug was used to cover the floors of yurts and mosques. Revisited by the Bourroulec brothers or Gan Rugs, these casual rugs have a modern charm blended with an ethnic touch.
