ANCIENT EGYPTIAN RUGS MADE MODERN

Kilim, meaning “rug” in Turkish, has had a recent resurgence in Egypt, thanks to the founders at Kiliim Designs who revitalized the ancient Egyptian rugs tradition. After their daughter’s birth, founders Ibrahim and Noha searched for a quality kilim rug to place in their daughter’s nursery. With little success, they decided to start Kiliim Designs to provide themselves and others with handmade kilim rugs. Kiliim’s rugs are made in the small village of Fowa, where Egyptian kilim has historically been produced. Here is an exclusive interview with the founders of the ancient Egyptian rug inspired brand, Kiliim.

The revival of the ancient Egyptian rugs by Kiliim Designs have not gone unnoticed. In May 2019, the world-renowned architectural historian and curator, Mohamed Elshahed, designated an Egyptian focused exhibition during New York Design month featuring their designs. The popular show, WantedDesign, also featured their work in hopes of advancing Egyptian designers, like Kiliim, to gain worldwide recognition. Consider a wool or cotton accent rug to cover floor space in a foyer, bedroom, bathroom or living space. Choose from various colors, patterns and textures that fit in with many interior design styles including boho, traditional, minimal and modern.
