    How kilims are Made:
     

    Kilims are produced by tightly interweaving the warp and weft strands of the
    weave to produce a flat surface with no pile. Kilim weaves are tapestry weaves,
    technically weft-faced plain weaves, that is, the horizontal weft strands are
    pulled tightly downward so that they hide the vertical warp strands.
     
    When the end of a color boundary is reached, the weft yarn is wound back from
    the boundary point. Thus, if the boundary of a field is a straight vertical line,
    a vertical slit forms between the two different color areas where they meet. For
    this reason, most kilims can be classed as "slit woven" textiles. The slits are
    beloved by collectors, as they produce very sharp-etched designs, emphasizing the
    geometry of the weave. Weaving strategies for avoiding slit formation, such as
    interlocking, produce a more blurred design image.
