Pirot kilims are woven with very fine wools and the weft is often cotton.
From the end of the 19th century, these kilims were often woven for commercial purposes. For this reason, the motifs were interpreted more regularly and larger sizes were found.
As these rugs were woven in Europe, the motifs are often stylized interpretations of nature, combined with the geometric patterns typical of kilims.
Colors are bright and contrasting. Red is often used as a background, and sometimes blue in all its shades. White, yellow, black or brown provide contrast and emphasize the motifs, while the other colors enliven the weave as a whole.
Pirot kilims were added to UNESCO's intangible heritage list in 2012.

Weaving: Women learned the art of kilim weaving from their mothers or grandmothers. Kilims were woven by hand, using hand-spun wool, which they dyed as they went along.

Patterns and colors: Each region had its own way of spinning wool, its own patterns and its own palette of colors.

These antique kilims were intended for domestic use.
They were woven without drawing boards, which adds a real personal touch and makes them unique pieces.
Their beauty depends on the way the weaver has interpreted the motifs and combined the colors.
That's why we choose our kilims one by one, to select only the most beautiful.

Every day: you can vacuum, but not at maximum power. Avoid vacuum cleaners with rotating brushes.

Liquid spills: mop up as much liquid as possible and rub gently with a damp cloth. 

Grease stains: soak up as much grease as possible with paper towels or terre de Sommières.

Accidents involving animals: in this case, it's very important to act quickly, as animals release acids that will damage wool. Treat your kilim following the same advice as for spilled liquids. 

For a more thorough cleaning: it may be that the stains have not been completely treated, or that over the years, despite regular maintenance, dust has settled in and a grey veil has set in. In such cases, it's time to turn to a professional. 

That's why we offer a cleaning service, carried out by a company specialized in manual and wet carpet cleaning.
