This cushion is made from hand knotted Persian Rug. The original rug is made of wool. The backing is wool and closed with a solid hidden zipper.

The difference between a kilim rug and a carpet or a pile rug, is that whereas the design visible on the kilim is made by interweaving the variously colored wefts and warps, thus creating what is known as a flat weave, in a pile rug individual short strands of different color, usually of wool, are knotted onto the warps and held together by pressing the wefts tightly against each other.
