Kiliim is an Egyptian social enterprise and a lifestyle brand that aims to revive and sustain the local craft of handmade kilim making in Egypt by introducing modern designs to a time-honored technique. All Kiliim rugs are manufactured in Fowwa, a small village situated along the lush Nile Delta. Kiliim’s craftspeople come from a long line of kilim artisans who consider the craft as part of their heritage and are paid a living wage for their traditional, heritage craft. Each purchase supports Kiliim’s initiative to put Fowwa back on the local and international map for authentic kilim rug craftsmanship.

Each Kiliim product uses the finest quality wool yarn and dyes and is guaranteed to last a lifetime. Made of 100% Egyptian wool or 100% Egyptian cotton, a Kiliim product is immediately recognized for its impeccable craftsmanship and vibrant, timeless beauty.
