Cicim is a type of weaving created by placing colored pattern threads between the original and weft threads and compressing them.

It is often confused with rugs. However, unlike rugs, cicims give a different appearance on the face and back; These are weavings in which a third thread is used for decoration in addition to the weft and warp threads. Raised patterns appear on the surface of the fabric, as if they were made with a needle. The weft and warp threads that form the base are generally the same color and thickness, while the threads that make up the pattern are of different colors and thickness. Although it is seen that sheep wool is mostly used in Cicim weavings, weavings using bristle thread are also seen, although rarely.

The pattern is called two-hop or three-hop, depending on the way the thread is thrown.
