Traditionally woven as the base to their home or yurt, a kilim is often woven in 2 halves being between the summer and winter camp. Its said that the head of the tribe has his favourite wife that moments kilim or rug on top to show his love! Geometric in she due to the format of the weave these items were used as carrying cloths, blankets and eating and breadmaking cloths, also know as soffrehs. All shown in their size or shape, with antiqye pieces still having the yeast in ground into the reverse where the bread was kneaded in the desert. Traditional kilims therefore tend to be long and narrow but with the reproduction pieces for the western market shapes have changed while often maintaining the designs albeit with colours more suitable to the interior trends at the time.
