The rise and rise of flatweave rugs
It often seems that there's nothing new under the sun when it comes to rugs... Suddenly rug concepts originally designed for feet in ancient times in the sunny climates of the Middle East and West Asia are looking fantastic in stylish homes even in cold, dull Britain.
Flatweave rugs are appearing everywhere, from classic period homes to the latest city apartment developments. And they are showing off both traditional tribal designs and ultra chic modern versions.
The most basic flatweaves are rugs like dhurries and kilims (sometimes spelt kelims), which use the ancient, simple weaving techniques to produce a smooth, woven surface without a pile as such. The traditional yarn is wool, but cotton is also popular, while silk is possible, as are modern manmade yarns.
