Hugh’s Blog: What’s New  Pinterest Albums: Anatolian Kilims and Tribal Rugs  Hugh’s Art Website: sculpture-ireland.com

Welcome to www.kilim.ie the home of antique and hand-made kilims and tribal rugs in Ireland

On my website you will find kilims (or kelim, gelim in Persian), rugs and weavings I have sought out and brought back from the Middle East: Kilims from Anatolia in Turkey, Kurdistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Kazakstan and Baluchistan; embroideried cicim, zili & soumac rugs, cushions, heybe camel and horse bags, chuval grain bags & khorjin salt bags as well other interesting and beautiful silk and tribal textiles.

See listings and occasional auctions of kilims and antique textiles and pick up a bargain in my eBay shop: Tribal Rugs and Kilims

Customers purchasing online within the EU can pay by free SEPA bank transfer available for most internet bank accounts. For customers outside Europe I recommend Transferwise which has low fees and uses better exchange rates than banks and online payment compaines. Customers calling in person may pay by debit or credit card.


If you would like more information about my collection of kilims, rugs and other objects or additional photos, please send me an email or phone me.
