ABOUT CHOBI KILIMS

Kilims (gelīm) are flat tapestry-woven carpets or rugs produced from the Balkans to Pakistan.

Kilims can be purely decorative or can function as prayer rugs.

Recently made kilims are popular floor-coverings in Western households.

Chobi kilims are among the most desired and most popular rugs in the western world particularly in North America.

The word Chobi with its various spelling and transliteration (choobi, choubi, chubi) is an attribution from the word “choob” with a long vowel of ”oo” as it sounds in book.

“ Choob” literally means wood and originally is a Dari word that is used for the same meaning in Urdu as well as some parts of India.

Chobi rugs was a response to The North American fashion taste that intended to modify the boldness of the traditional rugs in order to give a muted and antique look of natural wood color that was desired by modern fashion industry.

Weaving Chobi rugs started in border region of Pakistan and Afghanistan where these rugs mostly produced from the North American market.

Several years ago a company named Rugman invested a significant amount of money to create workshops in the region to weave chobi kilims.

WEAVING TECHNIQUE

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.
