What is Cecim / Cicim Kilim?
Cecim is a traditional embroidery technique used in creating flatweave textile rugs, particularly in Turkey, which involves adding extra weft threads to the fabric during the weaving process, which can create a raised, textured effect or add decorative patterns to the fabric's surface. It is a labor-intensive technique that requires high skill and expertise to achieve the desired result. They are highly valued for their beauty, durability, and unique aesthetic. Cecim rugs indicate or are reminiscent of the tribal design style often associated with Kurdish culture. We always celebrate these one-of-a-kind hand-knotted rugs in our hand-selected collection.
