Fashion Industry and Interior Design
Kilims are basically flat tapestry carpets. And while they are generally used as floor rugs, they can be used merely decoratively as well. Kilim fabrics’ unique characteristics ‒ their flexibility and endless colour combinations and design patterns ‒ have made them an ideal choice to be used in making other sorts of products as well. In the last two decades, for example, kilim have been used more and more in producing cushions, ottomans, bags, and other accessories. The striking patterns and colour combinations in kilims have brought a fresh spirit to contemporary styles and interior designs.
Kilim in Fashion Design
With their limitless colour variations and distinctive patterns, kilim fabrics provide fantastic options for designing fashion items and accessories by adding a vintage or traditional touch to contemporary fashion styles.
Producers are now using kilim in wall hangings, keychains, and many other products. In particular, being such a durable material, kilim bags are becoming a popular accessory. And made in combination with leather kilim bags become even more durable, and add a whole other character to the final product. Stylish, unique and durable, leather and kilim bags are not only practical; they can also be used for all occasions and in concert with a wider range of outfits.
Kilim fabrics can be used as a primary decorative material in designing just about any type of bag, from backpacks to clutches, satchels, handbags, crossbody bags, wallets, bucket bags, cosmetic bags, duffle bags and totes.
