Mary Kelly Kilims, established in 1995, is a specialist importer of kilims and other flat-weave rugs, runners, saddle-bags, cushions and decorative fragments. Newer additions are patchwork and over-dyed rugs.
Kilim-covered stools & benches, stunning kilim & leather handbags & overnight bags are also stocked.
A chance meeting with a friendly rug dealer whilst on holiday in Turkey 15 years ago was the start of Mary Kelly Kilims. Bitten by the rug bug almost instantly, it was the colours and vibrancy of the flat-woven kilims that ignited my passion.
I travel to Turkey annually, both to discover new trends and to purchase new stock. And I am always hoping to find that truly spectacular but oh so elusive special kilim… it’s what takes me back time and again! That and the chance to indulge my handbag fetish!
Now that my four sons have scattered across the globe, I have the time and the rugs to help create beautiful interior spaces in your home, bach and office. A beautiful rug does make a difference, and I endeavour to make the finding of that rug a relaxed and enjoyable experience.
Each kilim is personally selected, no two are ever the same. Great attention is given to quality, design, colour harmony, and of course value for money. There is a large selection of all products available, with a much smaller selection shown on the website.
Kilims have many applications in our homes, from simple floor-coverings, to serious art for the wall. Settling easily in both old and new homes, they reflect everything from strict minimalism to opulent excess, proving that when you want to make an impression, it's smart to start from the floor up.
