Our Kilim Cushions are hand made from Antique Hand Woven Turkish Kilim in the UK. Each one is unique. Some cushions fronts are cut from the same Kilim but rarely will that achieve an exact pair. Kilims are flatwoven by hand rather than hand knotted to a pile like a rug and mostly made of wool onto a cotton or wool base. Kilims have been made in Turkey and many other rug producing countries for centuries for the weavers own use and for sale and export. Very collectable and desirable, Kilim has always been a stylish addition to create a gorgeous, sumptuous feel to any interior decor.
Each cushion is cut from a larger Kilim (sometimes called a Flatweave) by hand and sized accordingly, ready for our craftsmen to sew a luxurious cord/cotton or most commonly suede like backing material, in a neutral colour to the reverse.
This example has been made from individual squares of Kilim to form a patchwork effect of many different Kilim designs and colours. We think it is stunning!
All of our cushions are zip fastened so that the cushion pad can be removed should they require cleaning*.

*Please don't attempt to clean Kilim cushions with any bleach based cleaning products as all Kilims are dyed using natural and vegetable dyes and colours may run causing irreversible damage. If you are unsure please contact us for advice or to ask about our cleaning services.
