This fine quality multi-coloured Kilim comes from City of Maimana, Afghanistan.
Weavers are always trying to change colour combinations every 2 to 3 years and beside using traditional designs they are try to feature some new designs.
The term Kilim is used to describe a pileless flat rug made for different uses.
Kilims are generally woven with the slit weave technique. The slit refers to the gap left between two blocks of color.
It is created by returning the weft around the last warp in a color area, and the weft of the adjacent color is later returned around the adjacent warp. Weavers pack the weft tightly to completely cover the warp and often favor diagonal patterns so as to avoid weakening the structure of the rug with vertical slits. It produces bold, sharp patterns that weavers enjoy creating with more freedom allowed than a plain weave. This is also why kilims are so closely associated with geometrical designs even though there are kilims with floral designs as well.
