Here at Woven we love flat-weave rugs.
With a lower, often reversible pile, flat-weave rugs are perfect to add extra style to your home. We have a huge selection of flat-weave rugs and work with some of the best designers including Linie design, Ligne Pure and Massimo.
Flat-weave rugs come under several different names including Kelims, Kilims, Dhurie, Navajo and Soumak, and are made in made in Turkey, Kurdistan and neighbouring areas.
Traditionally, antique Kilim rugs were made by tribal women, and each one told a different story.
These traditional rugs are particularly popular in Western households; they can be purely decorative or can also function as prayer rugs.
With so many different colour and style varieties, we are sure we can help you find the perfect flat-weave rug for your home.
In the hallway
Simplicity is often the best solution when looking for a kelim.
Kashba Splendid’s simple tonal strives and warn hues will bring balance to any room. This versatile rug is part of a beautiful Kelim collection from Brink & Campman and is hand-made to the highest standard using fine new wool.
Hang it on the wall
Hanging rugs seems to be the new 2018 trend! And it sure is a great one.
In the words of Elle Decoration magazine -
"Why let rugs fade under your feet? Now is the time to treat them like true works of art". The magazine write how “Rugs are works of art as well as practical pieces. Now their true beauty is being properly celebrated, as the practice of displaying them on the wall, gallery-style, is having a resurgence”.
Hanging rugs are also a great idea if you are decorating a smaller space, with a smaller floor surface area. Or why not hang a patterned kilim behind your bed as a replacement for a headboard – this can work out to be cheap AND stylish.
With the long awaited warm weather slowly but surely approaching, Angelo’s Mic Mac III rug can be used to create a refreshing, bright and airy spring atmosphere. It’s beauty lies in the use of modern bold colours with visually striking patterns. Mic Mac represents the best of traditional kelim techniques mixed with modern designs - each rug is simple in its loom construction being lashed at the edges.
