Moldavian rvintage kilim rugs were once used as wall carpets, they were designed to completely cover the main wall of the room in which they were hung. For this reason their size varies between 2m x 3m and larger. The very large kilims, over 2m x 4m, were reserved for rooms where guests were received. Small rose kilim rugs, less than 2m x 3m, were rare because small rooms were decorated with other types of rugs.

The walls of Moldavian peasant houses were decorated with kilim rugs to serve as thermal insulation in winter and as decoration that could be made by oneself or easily acquired.

Kilim rug weaving was practiced all over the country, with each region cultivating its own style, its own patterns. Kilim rug weaving was a winter activity practiced exclusively by women.
