PROCESS

Haraneyah knot and weave

The process of making a kilim rug begins with the selection of high-quality wool or cotton yarns. The yarns are dyed using natural dyes derived from plants and minerals, giving the kilim rugs their unique colors and patterns.

The artisans then use a loom to weave the yarns together, creating intricate patterns and designs. The weaving process is done entirely by hand, with each knot and stitch carefully crafted to ensure the highest quality.

Once the kilim rug is complete, it is washed and dried in the sun to give it a soft, supple texture. 

The final result is a beautiful and durable kilim rug that can last for generations.

EXTRACTION & DYEING PROCESS

The extraction process involves soaking the leaves in water and allowing them to ferment for several days. The resulting liquid is then mixed with a reducing agent, such as wheat bran or sugar, to create a dye bath.

The fabric is then dipped into the dye bath multiple times, allowing it to oxidize and turn blue. 

The more times the fabric is dipped, the darker the shade of color will be.
