Hand woven

The hand weaving technique is renown for its lack of pile. Requiring expert knowledge, skilled artisans are necessary for this traditional method of weaving that produces flat rugs with highly detailed patterns. Two examples of hand woven rugs are the Soumak and the Kilim.

The Soumak is a flat weave recognisable by its braided texture. The Soumak can be combined with the hand knotted technique and the Kilim on a single loom, creating a unique rug with different techniques.

The Kilim is hand woven with different coloured wefts, presenting detailed geometric patterns.
