In the past few days, we have done many kilim cleaning, repair and water damage restoration. Almost all those customers who have brought us these kilims have been in entertainment business, or have designers, musicians and somehow have had art appreciation.
Kilims are very decorative and can be used on the floor as floor covering, on the walls as wall hanging, on the bed as bed covers, on sofas, on tables and in many other places. The designs of kilims have gone under less changes based on the customers' tastes compared with rugs. therefore, kilims are more original and authentic than rugs.
Today, among other rugs, we received two kilims from two different customers. One was a 6 x 9 kilim for cleaning and repair. The other piece was a Varni kilim runner made with a combination of cotton and silk in Moghan area in Ardabil province in north west of Iran. The customer's dog had peed on this fine kilim which belonged to her friend and she wanted us to take care of the cleaning.
We were also busy with sale and doing some administrative jobs and paper work. I left work at 5:00 pm for home.
