This rug is cautiously washed by hands, soft brush and natural washer (neutral P.H) in our working place. Its opened roots are sewn by very narrow yarns and 5 metal rings are sewn among the warps and woofs in order to hang it on the wall. The weaving technique of spanish rug (Andlosia) belonging to 1930 t0 1940 was brought to Europe by the North African barbarians who immigrated to Spain.
The weaving of this type of rugs greatly has kept the originality of the North African desert dwellers’ rugs but its design have been become different and European style is used in it.
One of interesting points in weaving of these rugs which are brought to us for repairing is the method of weaving. Fars knots and Kurdestan-Saneh’s weaving technique has been used in them.
This Kilim , made from Lama woolen fibers (South American camel), is woven with unique technique, designs and drawings which are taken from Asian and Middle East kilims. These kilims are commonly used as coverlets .
Using pairs and parallel wraps and woofs which are woven as clothes, is the applying method and technique in Peruvian Kilims. Its designs and drawings are created by weaving the colored woofs between cream colored wraps. This weaving technique is the same as technique that is applied in weaving Mexican Poncho and it is also similar to Iranian Jajim .
