Inspired By Kilim Rugs

I’ve been inspired by some beautiful Kilim rugs I’ve spotted around the internet recently. I’ve wanted one of these for years, but have yet to get one other than a small DIY Kilim rug I made awhile back. Kilim rugs, also referred to as Turkish rugs are hand-woven rugs. Rather than your typical pile type rug, these are made using a process known as the flatweave. They have a very distinct style that is easy to spot. Here are some of my favorite spaces using Kilim rugs.
