The Kilim is a flat carpet weaving tapestry. In Tunisia and Morocco, Kilim is commonly called "Klim".
Kilim originates from the Middle East but spread throughout North Africa. In Tunisia, Kilims are generally made by nomads in Southern Tunisia.
In, they are easy to carry and serve multiple purposes like camel litter, or as a carpet in the tent.
Each tribe and each village use their own forms and techniques to make Kilims, which gives the Tunisian Kilim a lot of options. Kilims are lighter than traditional blankets, making them easy to maintain. However, Tunisian Kilims are thicker than Kilims found in the Middle East.
