Region of Origin + Material Details
Anatolia makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey. Rugs from this region are defined by their tribal and geometric designs—with plenty of symbols reflecting life from traditional households.
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. The wool pile is knotted onto a cotton foundation, cotton used is rigid, strong, and provides a sturdy foundation that’s designed to last a lifetime.
