This cushion made from handwoven Persian kilim. The original kilim rug is made of wool. The backing is soft fabric and closed with a solid hidden zipper.

The difference between a kilim area 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.
