Moroccan Taznak Kilim *

* This rug is an example of what I offer. Please enquire about current stock to see availability”.

6’1″ x 10’1″/ 3.06 x 1.85. Other rug sizes are available.

Taznak kilims are hand woven mixed technique – the rug is both flat and has raised pile detailing – all wool flatweaves from Morocco. Kilims are handmade across the rug-weaving world and are quickly artisan produced by creating the design using the widthwise weft threads as the design. Therefore, there is no labour intensive and time-consuming hand knotting, but this means kilims are not to be used as hard-wearing floor coverings. They do have a multitude of uses, including bedspreads, wall hangings, tablecloths and loosely covering furniture.

These rugs offer a very bright, cheerful and cost-effective way to acquire a handmade floorcovering for a reasonable price. Always use on the floor with a suitable underlay which helps stop them creeping and protects them from being crushed against a hard surface. Due to the lack of pile they are also prone to showing dirt relatively quickly so keep on top of the cleaning regime- have them expertly cleaned every three years.

This example of a handmade wool multi coloured Taznak kilim is highly joyful and creative – the most effective way to brighten up cold north European homes or to use on a tiled floor in a hot climate

Please use your rug with a suitable underlay which will protect the back of the knots and allow dirt to fall through the rug. Vacuum sparingly, once a week is sufficient, and do so on a low power and without the rotating brush, as this strips the pile. Clean professionally at least once every five years. Turn your rug every year if possible to even out footfall patterns and sun fading. Never leave your rug undisturbed under furniture in the dark. Keep a moth trap in the room if possible.
