Rugs & Kilims, what’s the difference?

Rugs & Kilims what’s the difference?
The word kilim simply means flat woven rug, or a rug without a knotted pile. Kilims are not knotted. instead the thread or yarn is woven in a flat manner on the warp strings, so they don't have pile. Unlike rugs, kilims are multi-purpose and can be used as more than just a floor covering.
