Because kilims are often cheaper than pile rugs, beginning carpet collectors often start with them. Kilims have become increasingly collectible in themselves in recent years, with quality pieces now commanding high prices. Because kilims were not a major export commodity, there were no foreign market pressures changing the designs, as happened with pile carpets. Once collectors began to value authentic village weaving, kilims became popular. Now, many kilims are woven for export.professionally cleaned or repaired contact us and we can help bring it back into shape.
