Bold, distinctive patterns; brilliant colors; affordability--these are some of the characteristics that explain the tremendous popularity of the marvelous, flatwoven textiles from the Near and Far East known as kilims. The most comprehensive and beautifully illustrated survey to date, Kilim contains hundreds of color photographs, many taken especially for this volume, accompanied by an authoritative text examining the origins, history, and weaving techniques of these unique cloths, used primarily as bags, wall hangings, and rugs. A directory to international kilim auction houses; a source listing of dealers and services; and a reference guide to the collecting, care, and futher study of kilims conclude this definitive work on a widely appealing subject.
