For all you rug-geeks and kilim-ophiles (and I consider myself both), order a copy of Marla Mallett’s “Woven Structures”!
Although this book is not really for those new to rugs and kilims, it is great for those with some knowledge who would like to deepen their understanding. This book, as its title suggests, goes into the technical structures of rugs and textiles. I particularly love this book for its clear illustrations and descriptions of various flat-woven “kilim” techniques. Have you ever asked yourself, “What is the difference between a Zili and a Cicim?”. Well, this book is the perfect reference to answer that question.
Anyway, if you are an aspiring “rug-bug” or an advanced “carpet-conisseur”, I highly recommend this book as an invaluable reference. This book has been out-of-print for a while so get ’em while they’re hot!
