Dangling from the Treetops...

Monday, 19 June 2017

Dangling from the treetops might not seem a productive way to spend the working day, but last week the whole Myakka team from Wincanton and Guildford, downed tools for a day of fun and mental challenges in the countryside. This annual company day out took us to the other side of Somerset for some team building exercises and allowed us to take a short break from helping our customers and tackling furniture logistics.


Splitting into four teams across mixed departments, the friendly rivalry soon surfaced as we were led across some pretty 'out of your comfort zone' challenges. Learning how to 'levitate' and transfer radioactive rods from one tube to another was heaps of fun, but the crate stack really sorted the men from the boys (sorry ladies, it's just a saying!).

At the end of the challenge, a nail-biting tie-break was resolved by rock, paper, scissors, only for the winner of that to have failed in discovering the ultimate winning code to unlock the treasure chest! The tension!

Congratulations to Vicki's team, the supreme champions of decoding! Bring it on next year.

Thanks to Mendip Outdoor Pursuits for a fun day, and thanks to Donna for supplying the sweeties to keep our team going.

What is a Kilim?

Wednesday, 7 June 2017

We often get questions from customers about kilim rugs. Most of the rugs we have available are kilim rugs so we thought we would take this opportunity to tell you a little more about these versatile and stylish rugs.

The most obvious difference between a kilim and other styles of rugs is that they are flat woven so don’t have any pile like a more traditional carpet. This does mean that they can feel a little thin compared to other rugs, but as they have a very close weave and the strength of the materials used, kilims are a very durable rug.

A majority of our kilim rugs are made from 80% wool and 20% cotton. Both these materials are farmed around India with most of the wool coming from the Bikaner area of India in the North West neighbouring Pakistan. The wool is carefully hand spun, washed and hand dyed before skilled artisans weave it into the beautiful kilims that look great in your home.  By using these natural products which are often still dyed by had with natural vegetable dyes, it means that every rug is slightly different.


Many of the skilled weavers work in factories or from home on their own looms, working either by themselves or in pairs depending on the size of the rug. This is where the cotton and wools gets turned into the finished stylish kilim rugs. Traditionally many of the patterns and symbols had meanings with each rug telling a story such as long life, fertility and family but the more modern designs tend to have a more geometric in design. Many of the weavers who work from home have to fit their weaving time in around farming which can make supply a little unpredictable!  Once the kilim is finished it is taken to the main warehouse where it is quality checked before being packed and sent over to the UK ready to be sent to customers’ homes.

This summer we have three new kilim designs available and more in the pipeline for autumn. Make sure you take a look at all our kilims here.
