About Kilim Pillows
In fact, such products have emerged with recycling. In a little, it was produced by chance. The reason is that people do not think to produce pillows by kilims or rugs. Yes, tapestries were produced for laying down, making a tent, or hanging to the wall against the cold. However, over time, these products have been worn out due to use and deformations have occurred in some parts. Because of the fact that it is a hand-knitted product and completely natural materials have been used, these products have high labor and therefore value. Moreover, as such fabrics are used, their colors and textiles have a better appearance and color tone. When this is the case, it is obviously not logical to dispose of it in the other part because of a deformation in the partial place. At this point, various techniques have been used to reuse the solid part and a lot of new products have emerged. Bags, cushion covers, wallets, jackets.
SomKilimPillows carries partial deformed items which were bought from town people and tapestry traders to our production plant in the Kayseri City of Turkey. First of all, the process is washing products. The washing process is both for stains and for hygiene. With purely plant-based and non-perfumed shampoos, we try to make the product clean as if it had never been used. If we do not get the result of the hygiene and cleanliness we want in the first wash, SomKilimPillows makes the pre-washing process. The washed parts are dewatered with the help of the machine and we complete the drying process under the sun. Drying under the sun makes both microorganisms disappear and colors more vivid. However, one of the most important issues to be considered during washing is that colors do not mix. Each dye and color of each rope is created by its own techniques, so each product is different in its washing. Some use hot water and some use cold water. Some need less shampoo, some needs more shampoo. The washing time is also variable. A product should be washed in 15 minutes and not in 3 hours. Improper permanent faults can occur in the products as a result of incorrect washing.
Products that have been cleaned are classified according to their quality and location. The most effective points at the pricing point are material quality, color, pattern, and locality. For this reason, products that will have the same pricing are classified first. Then, with the least waste, we calculate the measurements we can take from the parts and the cutting process is started. At this point, when we cut a hand-woven and old product into pieces, they all become different and another product with exactly the same pattern is very difficult. Therefore, our hand-woven products are only 1 piece each. In fact, this is what makes our products different. The same product you own will not be in another. You can use SomKilimPillows products everywhere. In your home (living room, guest room, kitchen, chair or armchair), at your workplace, for hotel decoration, cafe, saloon, wedding organizations, all kinds of decoration and souvenir shops and furniture stores.
