Story Behind the Art:
This Kilim design originates from Mimana, an area suspected to have been settled in Paleolithic times due to the numerous cave dwellings discovered there. Master World-stock weavers in Afghanistan have managed to replicate this pattern. Kilims are known as 'pileless' rugs; the design is also known as 'slitweave.' These beautiful designs are achieved by interweaving the various colors of the vertical and horizontal strands of the rug. It can be used as a hanging piece or as a floor covering.
The handcrafted touch of artisan skill creates variations in color, size and design. If buying two of the same item, slight differences should be expected. Note: Color discrepancies may occur between this product and your computer screen.
