Beautiful Small Modern Persian Flat Weave Rug. Country of Origin: Modern Persian / Circa Date: Modern – Kilim rugs are a class separate from all other oriental rugs. Unlike other rugs where the naps are hand-knotted into the warps and wefts, Kilim rugs have the warps and the wefts made of different colors to create the final look of the rug. The weaving technique creates what is known as the flat weave. This weaving technique has been practiced for many years in Turkey and Persia. The resulting rug looks great and the patterns are more elaborate. The kilim technique is more ideal in rugs with large patterns that cross from one side of this rug to the next.
This modern Persian kilim rug features black strips of different widths and edge textures on a background of beige. The combination of colors makes the rug useful in different interior spaces. The patterns are not in any specific order as the artists alternate the widths of the black strips to create a beautiful looking rug. Besides the stripes, there is no motif or any other patterns on the rug.
The minimalist design makes this rug ideal for a modern minimalist home as it blends into the style. In a home or office with many colors, the rug harmonizes the colors and enhances them even better. The artists sought to create imbalanced patterns for homes with balanced and symmetrical styles. One side of this rug has more beige while the other has more black to create an imbalanced but perfect work of art.
The rug will work well in living rooms, bedrooms, office spaces, and any other area that might need a rug. It is as beautiful as it is functional. The flat weave feels softer than a rug pile and looks even better. Under the feet, the rug feels spongy as it sinks with every step. Even a simple looking rug takes a lot of time to hand-weave as artists have to work on a single color block before moving to the next. These rugs will also look great as a wall hanging or for bench and divan coverings.
