What is a Moroccan Kilim Rug


Kilim rugs are essentially flatweave rugs, which, as the name implies, are woven flat with no pile, removing the longer fibers that give rugs their plush, cushy feel.

Flatweaves are made from a variety of materials, giving them a lovely feel while also offering a wide range of durability and beautiful pattern and color options.


What Rooms Are Best for Kilim Rugs?

Spaces where you'll be scooting chairs around, such as the office or dining room, are also good places to use a Kilim rug because it provides less friction when moving chairs. Despite being excellent choices for high-traffic areas, flatweave rugs can be used in any room!
