Antique kilims are those which were made by the ancient civilizations of Turkey, Persia, Afghanistan and other parts of the Orient. Kilims are flat tapestry woven carpets and rugs. They are less durable than usual rugs and carpets. They are also used as floor coverings. Because they are tapestry woven, kilims are also utilized as wall hangings. They render an ornamental feel to the room and improve the overall décor.
