Sometimes the corners of your kilim can curl up which can not only be annoying but in some cases a hazard. But rest assured there is an easy fix! A couple of small strips of leather stitched to the back will stop any curling of the corners and is pretty much invisible so you won’t effect the look of your kilim at all. I had one kilim in the shop whose corners were turning pretty badly so I thought it would be a nice opportunity to show how easily this can be remedied.
Before: Badly turning corners (and in opposite directions no less!)
And after with some strips of leather hand stitched to the back (I have also seen thin plastic and heavy material used as well but I think leather is the easiest to use and offers the best results).
So in a relatively short period of time (30-60mins) you have fixed that pesky problem and can once again fully enjoy your handmade functional art!
Note: Kilims woven on goat hair warps tend to curl more easily. As do smaller kilims with a fine (small) weave.
