FACTS & HISTORY: Turkish kilim is by far the most used and highly regarded method of weaving kilim. Kilim originated in the Anatolia area of Turkey. Situated between the Black and Mediterranean seas, Anatolia is often thought of as one of the great crossroads between ancient civilizations. The merging of Eastern and Western cultures has been part of the history of kilim since it’s beginning. Many of the shapes and symbols found in Turkish kilim can be traced to these ancient times. The bright colors and diverse designs found in Turkish kilim can largely be attributed to the region’s colorful and often complicated past.
