Kilim carpets: This popular category of handmade carpets is manufactured mostly in N. Iran and Afghanistan. The texture is hard and feels like there is no pile at all. On both sides kilims are decorated in the same way with abstract geometric motifs, inspired by the natural world and the nomadic lifestyle. The colors used are often intense and clear. They are so durable, that can be used anywhere, even in the countryside, as they do in Persia, where most persian people go out for pick-nick or celebrating “Norooz”, the First Day of the spring, in the 21st of March every year. Quality in kilims varies. In special cases, manufacturers create every inch of the kilim carpet-knot by knot-using a special technique, known as ‘suzani’. Kilims ‘suzani’ are often made of refined wool with silk and cotton at the pale and the warp.
