Kilims-Dhurries-Flatweaves Rugs

The Jajim (cecim) technique is followed in Turkey, Persia and the Caucasus and consists of a plain weave (equal warps and wefts) ground with an added (supplementary) weft pattern. The wefts are usually discontinuous, cut off on the verso (back). The pattern develops as the ground is woven on the loom and not added afterwards as on an embroidered rug. It is easier to make repeating geometric patterns of squares, lozenges, diamonds, stepped diagonal lines and areas of plain color. Sometimes Jajim are in two pieces, stitched together along one long side, depending on the width of the loom. The Jajim technique seems to go back well into the 19th century in Turkey, but, since the flatweaves are generally made for household use and tossed out when worn, few early antique examples have survived. Jajims are generally found in good condition since it is easier to weave one anew than to repair a damaged one. Kilims. Colors: beige/greens/copper/blues

Vacuum your rug frequently and use a vacuum which uses suction and does not have bristles. If possible, set vacuum to low power setting and vacuum the rug up and down and do not use a back-and-forth motion.

If possible, rotate the rug every few years to allow foot traffic to be spread evenly and shade the rug from direct sunlight to avoid fading in areas.

A rug pad is recommended on all surfaces to prevent slipping and stop marking if on floors with grooves or lines. Professional cleaning is recommended every two or three years.
