Flat weave rugs are known to have no pile, which is achieved by tightly interweaving the warp and weft strands of the wool. Kilim rugs and Jajeem carpets are both types of flat woven rugs. Jajeem carpets are flat-woven rugs with embroidery work and are generally more detailed. The most recognized and highly esteemed rugs are distinguished by the area, villages, or cities in which they were woven. Some Kilim rugs are produced in two or three narrow pieces, which are then woven together to create a wider rug. Many Kilim carpets are used as table coverings, bed covers, and wall hangings.
Turkish Kilim rugs are characterized by lighter colors of gold, orange, and light blue, although there are Vintage Kilim rugs and Vintage Jajeem rugs from the 1950s and 1960s with bright and brilliant colors. Persian Kilim carpets have darker, richer tones, while Caucasian Kilim rugs have brighter colors in reds, greens, and blues.
