Notes: 
: Cicim or Jijim or Jajim: kilims woven in narrow strips that are sewn together. Most Anatolian kilims are slit woven. Larger antique kilims were woven in two to three separate sections on small nomadic horizontal floor looms in three feet wide long strips, then carefully sewn together matching the patterns edges to create an ultimately wider rug. These pieces are still being produced in very limited quantities by nomadic tribes for their personal use and are commonly known as cicims. Vegetable dyed very fine wool used for floor covering or bed cover or used as dining ground area.
