The kilim shown here is a moj, also called jajim. It is a type of kilim that different tribes wove, including the Qashqai. Moj were used to cover the piles of carpets and kilims in nomadic tents, although today they are used as yet another kilim on the ground. This moj has vertical bands, woven from expertly spun wool, thus giving a kilim of great precision.
This moj combines kilim or woven areas with knotted areas or carpet.
