Kilim rugs

You have a unique Kilim rug. Don’t trust it to just anyone.

Kilim Rugs are much different than most other rugs. I would say the biggest difference is that Kilim rugs have no pile. They are not stitched into a backing. This means they are woven into whats called a flat weave. Due to their uniqueness, special care must be used when cleaning Kilim rugs. These types of rugs are always recommend to be cleaned in-plant at our Kilim rug cleaning facility. They are mainly hand dyed with vegetable dyes. If you get them cleaned on-site you run the risk of the colors running and the dyes being removed.

The drying process is very important. Rugs are hung very carefully, as they are very heavy when wet. They are placed in humidity controlled rooms to prevent bacteria growth. They are monitored for humidity and filtered natural air forced through the room to create good air flow. We never use heat to dry the rugs as this can cause them to shrink.
