Kilim Fars: The kilim Fars are famous for the variety of their motifs. In this category also belong textiles of various applications, such as saltbags, horsebags, cushions etc. They are being woven by the Nomads in Persia. The most famous Persian kilims are Sumak, Senneh, Fars and Qashqai.

Kilim: This is a particular type of Oriental flat woven rug without a pile (which preceded the pile carpet) and is manufactured mainly by nomads in Persia, Afghanistan, Turkey and in various regions of the Caucasus. These textiles are rather small with a plain weave and no pile and they have got geometric patterns and rich colours. In order to weave them, natural materials like wool are used and sometimes silk for lightweight and delicate carpets. The colouring of yarns is done with plants and minerals that contribute to natural, beautiful colours. The long history of Kilim rugs goes back centuries to the nomads of Central Asia. Initially the carpets were mainly used in households and much later became commercial products, following the bloom of theoriental carpeting during the 16th and 17th century. They have many applications and can be used on the floor, as toppings or for decorating walls. The name kilim is derived from the Persian word gelim. In Kurdish they are called Berr. The most famous Persian carpets are Sumakh, Senneh, Fars and Qashqai. Many Kilims are also woven at the border between Persia and Afghanistan by the nomads of Balouch with dark earthy indicative colours.

Horizontal or vertical shading in the carpet pile: The shading is due to folding the carpet during transportation. When the carpet is laid and stepped-on they will vanish. Examples

Abrash: Due to the different amount of grease in the wool and the added salt during the process of dyeing, the wool has got a varying colour absorbance. This is not very visible before weaving. During the weaving though, lines of the same colour are formed in the carpet. This is called Abrash (which in Farsi means little cloud) and it shows that the wool was not manufactured using chemical means and marks the naturalness and authenticity of the carpets. Examples
