Kelim rugs are better known today as flat weave carpets, without pile and were initially used as floor coverings made by nomades for their tents. As time passed and people began to show interest they soon became commercialised to what we know now. Originally these carpets were woven for purpose(once own use) out of goat and camel wool; giving a rougher texture and increasing durable compared to the newer ones which are now made of lambs wool making it more pleasant to walk on. These are traditionally distinguished by area, villages or cities they were produced in.
