A vintage hand woven flatweave hemp Kilim The weave is a simple tabby or plain weave. There are no borders. The texture is robustly coarse and firm, and a good pad is recommended. They are cool to the touch and slightly bristle-y, perfect in place of dhurries for beach houses or other informal settings. They will also work well in contempo contexts. These hemp carpets are easy to clean and are naturally moth resistant.

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.
