Cicim (pronounced jijim in English) kilims are generally woven from a flat weave construction and are commonly found in bold designs like our Mazhar Cicim Kilim. The difference between cicim kilims and regular kilims can be found on the underside of the rug. Due to a different weaving technique used on a cicim kilim the underside will often show the raw edge of the yarns as seen in this one. The use of colours such as green, deep red and blue woven closely together portrays a heavy eastern influence making this kilim a real focal piece for any space needing a bit of a global influence. This kilim comes from the city of Kars in Turkey, is made from 100% wool and is in very good condition. It is estimated to be 40 years old.
