The origin of kilims evolved from purely utilitarian, non-decorative, non-symbolic applications of weaving in some remote period of prehistory when human beings started to express themselves through arts and crafts.
The first weave was a technological advance over animal skins which were probably already decorated with dyes or beads when weaving was discovered, so it is probable that some patterns of color were incorporated into some of the early products of the weaver's loom
1000 BC is the probable date of the slitweave technique. This discovery was related to those flatwoven textiles found at Fostat in Egypt dating from the seventh to the eleventh century.
