About Naghsh-e Alast Kilim

Kilim is a type of rug with a simple weave and knot without any pile, which is woven with wool and cotton, and in some cases with wool and goat hair. It is one of the oldest human floor coverings. The oldest piece of kilim in the world is the remains of a kilim that was obtained in Anatolia and belongs to six thousand years before Christ. The oldest Iranian kilim belongs to three thousand years before Christ and is located in the western region of Iran. Kilims are rooted in beliefs and convictions.
With the migration of Kurdish tribes during the Safavid era to the vast land of Khorasan, many of their customs and traditions were transferred to this region. The most common art of Kurdish tribes is the weaving of a type of rug called "Kurdish tablecloth”, which reflects the weaver's life story. This art is unique to Khorasan, and Kurdish tablecloth is a type of rug with a twisted weave. Geometric, animal, and plant patterns in these weavings have been mentally passed down from mothers and grandmothers to future generations. The finger marks on these rugs are a symbol of gratitude and love for life with family. In the past, due to its high impermeability to dust and moisture, these weavings were considered a suitable tool for storing bread among nomads. Therefore, it is known as Kurdish tablecloth.
