The handmade kilim industry which is one of Egypt’s heritage crafts was dying. Craftsmen with no formal design backgrounds designed, selected colors and materials themselves, making their final product less sell-able in contemporary homes. We partnered up with local craftsmen in Fowwa and went on to found Kiliim, an online store and lifestyle brand that aims to revive and sustain the heritage of handmade kilim making by offering our customers traditionally crafted kilim products yet designed with modern motifs and colors to suit contemporary homes.
