How do we produce Turkish Kilim Pillows?
The production of kilim pillows is an art element just like the production of kelims. It is not just about washing, cutting and sewing. As you know, the fabrics we use in the production of kilim pillows are vintage and hand-woven. Before giving more information about production, actually knowing the differences and details of vintage and new kilims will enable us to have a greater understanding of the subject.
Turkish women have produced weavings and textiles for centuries, as they did not have machine-made floor coverings in the past. These products were used not only as floor coverings, but also as protection from the cold, tents and dowries that they will take to their new homes when they get married. With the developing technology and the change in the way of life of the people, the production of hand-woven kilims and rugs has decreased significantly and the cost of the new products is very high.
Still, Turkey is a vintage rug store. Products that were produced in the past and that were intact are still used and bought and sold. Naturally, they can be a little more affordable than new ones, but due to intense demand, the prices of old products have approached the prices of new products. Various deformations have occurred in vintage rugs and kilims due to various natural factors, usage and washing.
If the economic value of these deformed products continues, they are repaired with the help of threads collected from vintage kilims and rugs. However, deformed kelims, whose maintenance and repair will take a long time and at the same time have a high cost, are transformed into other products and contribute to the economy and art. We prefer this type of kilims in our production. For this reason, we can offer you our products at the best price.
Our raw materials are collected from all provinces and villages of Turkey and delivered to us. The products coming to our factory are first put into disinfection and washing process. They are all anonymous art, and weaving techniques, threads and patterns are always unique. The bird pattern used in one region differs in the other region. Weaving techniques, patterns and colors are very important in determining which region the woven rugs and kilims belongs to.
These can be woven only in the same region show some similar characteristics. Because the women who make the weaving have always been in contact with each other and exchanged ideas to make the kilims they produce more beautiful. This situation, albeit partially, has created a standardization situation. However, we should know that no kelim is exactly the same as another. Even if the weaver person is the same, there is always a difference between the kilims she weaves.
The most important factor we pay attention to in the washing process of the rugs that reach our factory is the colors of the products. There is a risk that some colors may mix into other colors if they come into contact with water for a long time. These colors are generally red, blue and black. For this reason, the washing process should be done very quickly. Otherwise, the red color in the rug can be distributed to the lighter colors or the white floor. For this reason, we recommend you to clean the pillow covers you are considering to buy by professional dry-cleaning companies.
The most challenging and artistic stage in the transformation of Turkish kilims into pillows after washing is the cutting step. It is very important that a kilim to be cut is marked and drawn by a person who really understands art. Because it is an art to imagine what kind of product and pattern will come out while drawing the kilim pillow cover panel before it is formed. The most important factor is to be able to capture the most suitable pattern, color and shape among hundreds of drawing algorithms and that can attract customers' attention. For this job, it is necessary to know the tastes and design techniques of the people. Because a random drawing will affect the visuality and appeal of the product, as well as causing too much waste in the production phase.
We need to draw the panel to be cut, approximately 1/2 inch larger than the pillow size we want to obtain. This should be a seam allowance. Taking into account that this 1/2-inch size will remain on the inside of the pillow, it will contribute to producing the most magnificent patterned Turkish kilim pillows. After the marking process is finished, the cutting process is also completed. Thousands of panels we have obtained are now the raw materials of the pillows we will produce. We avoid including faulty and damaged areas in our panels as much as possible. What we call deformation in a kelim is punctures, tears and decays. The vintage and wear appearance of the threads and fabric does not mean that the product is damaged or faulty. Their wear is all related to their vintage and natural appearance. These worn kilims are the most important indicators that the pillows have a historical meaning.
We create a cover for placing the filling material on the back of the product. They are woven thick compared to fabrics, so double-sided Turkish kilim pillow cover production is very difficult. For double sided items, our size should be very large. It should be at least 32 inches so that 2 panels can be sewn together securely and have a beautiful view. For this reason, we only produce pillows with a kilim panel on one side. We sew special covers on the back sides where the filling material can be put.
The fabric we use in these covers is completely cotton, and we prefer to use a suitable thickness fabric with the thickness of the textile. We do not use lycra fabrics and polyester-containing fabrics in order to have a beautiful appearance when the products are filled with the insert material. The colors we use in the back cover fabric are generally beige and gray. We do not use vivid and bright colors as much as possible. Because the appearance of the Turkish kilim pillows is natural, we take care to ensure that the backing of pillow covers are as natural-looking and harmonious as possible.
