Herki carpets, masterpieces from the farthest reaches of history, are objects that, beyond their beauty, invite us to reflect deeply on art, culture and transmission. In their patterns, colors and shapes, we see a dialogue between past and present, an echo of the skilful hands that wove and knotted them, an invitation to contemplation.
Originating among the nomadic peoples of Iran, this weaving reveals a singular aesthetic and symbolism. The motifs, colors and arrangement of the elements speak to us of a universe specific to these peoples, of a vision of the world, of a discreet but omnipresent poetry.
Kilims, traditional rugs from the Middle East, are art pieces in their own right, full of history and symbolism. Beyond their aesthetic beauty, these rugs require special care to preserve their shine and durability.
The word "kilim" is commonly used to designate a woven wool carpet originating from the Near East, the Caucasus and Central Asia. These carpets have been around for almost ten thousand years, an assertion supported by numerous archaeological remains. Until recently, their function was not commercial. They reflect the authentic memory and identity of the sedentary, nomadic and semi-nomadic peoples who weave them. Each tribe and village has its own distinct style, ranging from shimmering colors to more sober motifs, depending on the region.
