Region of Origin + Material Details
Malatya, found in central Anatolia, is known for its coarsely knotted rugs and geometric designs woven by Kurdish tribes.
Wool is the most widely used fiber in Turkish rug design. Not only is it plentiful in supply, it’s durable, long-lasting, and soft. This wool pile is woven onto a foundation built from the hardy hair fibers of mountain-dwelling goats—a strong material that's sole purpose is to hold up through years of rugged wear.
