Did you know?

Tunisian kilims are known for the harmony of their patterns and colors. They recall the Berber history of Tunisia and differ from the Turkish or Persian kilim by their patterns, their thickness and their manufacturing technique. Tunisian kilims are very sturdy and neither too thin nor too thick : lighter than knotted rugs and thicker than Middle Eastern kilims.

Each tribe or village has its own styles and patterns. The patterns are always very tightly woven and therefore sharper and more defined than on knotted rugs. The patterns are mainly from the Berber tradition and always geometric. The triangle and the rhombus are the main motifs. They allow the craftswoman to play with colors and that is why kilims are often very colorful.

If you want a lively, lightweight and easy-care handcrafted rug, the kilim is the perfect carpet for you.

Here is the meaning of the main symbols of the Rug Kilim Yekker 114x194 cm :


Note
: Originally, the symbolism of Berber signs refers mainly to life, the fertility of the couple and the fertility of the land. Over the centuries, the meanings have often evolved or overlapped.

Red

The colour red has a prophylactic character in ancient Berber traditions: its strength and brilliance protect against accidents and diseases; it is the universal vector of the principle of life.

The rhombus

The diamond is the Berber carpet pattern par excellence. It appears on almost all Berber carpets in the Maghreb, whether in Tunisia, Algeria or Morocco.

Meaning 1: The diamond is an ancient Berber feminine symbol that represents woman and her beauty. It represents the womb of life, the uterus or the woman's body as a whole.

Meaning 2: The eye or the mirror: what reflects or allows one to see.The representation of the eye is in the Berber culture a way of countering the evil eye. In the same way, the mirror reflects the evil eye against itself.

The zigzag

The zigzag is one of the most present Berber signs on Tunisian and Moroccan carpets.

Meaning 1: Male symbol of fertility and fecundity.

Meaning 2: Image of water, symbol of life and matrix of existence. Image of the waves of the generating sea or of the lightning bringing rain.

Meaning 3: Image of the serpent that represents the lunar seasons and represents by its moult the renewal of life and the resurrection of nature, the cycle of seasons full of promise. The snake also represents the union of the opposites male and female, sky and earth, night and day...
