Merger of categoriesEdit

There are two categories relating to rugs: 1. Category:Rugs which is a sub-category of Category:Textile arts which is a sub category of the Categories: Artistic techniques | Art media | Textiles | Crafts | Arts and crafts and 2. Category:Rugs and carpets which is a sub-category of Category:Textiles

I propose to merge Category:Rugs into Category:Rugs and carpets. Please see discussion at Wikipedia:Categories_for_deletion#Category:Rugs_to_Category:Rugs_and_carpets --A Y Arktos 21:55, 4 January 2006 (UTC)Reply[reply]


"Zili" previously redirected here so I added a hatnote to the ancient Moroccan city. Since there is absolutely nothing on this page explaining why "Zili" should redirect here, I'm just changing the redirect pending some mention of it here and explanation w/r/t this being the PRIMARYTOPIC. — LlywelynII 08:42, 9 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Added description and ref to Kilim, fixed redirect to Kilim#Anatolia. Chiswick Chap (talk) 10:40, 9 December 2018 (UTC)Reply[reply]


The word گلیم (gelim) is attested in Persian literature from the 8th century, so it could not have been a Mongolian word.--Irman (talk) 11:28, 25 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]

Mongolian inscriptions are recorded from the 6th century, so it's perfectly possible; it's also reliably cited. Chiswick Chap (talk) 11:34, 25 March 2020 (UTC)Reply[reply]
I am not getting convinced. to me it seems a pure false claim. Can the source of this claim give an example of a Mongolian inscription with this word?
