Turkish rugs, also known as Anatolian rugs, are a type of handwoven rug that originated in the Anatolian region of Turkey. These rugs are known for their intricate patterns, vibrant colors, and high quality materials.
The tradition of rug weaving in Turkey dates back centuries, with the earliest known examples dating back to the 13th century. Turkish rugs were originally made by nomadic tribes as a means of providing warmth and comfort in their tents and homes. As the demand for these rugs grew, the craft became more sophisticated, with skilled artisans creating increasingly complex and ornate designs.
Today, Turkish rugs are made using a variety of materials, including wool, silk, and cotton.
The most common type of Turkish rug is the kilim, which is made using a flatweave technique that involves interweaving the threads to create a pattern. Other types of Turkish rugs include the pile rug, which has a thicker pile and is made using a knotting technique, and the soumak, which is made using a wrapping technique.
Here we have some smaller collections – some rugs with a longer hair pile called ‘Tulu’. Patchwork rugs made from off-cuts that’s we’ve stitched together to make a complete rugs. We have storage sacks, cushions and key rings with some of them showing below and the rest coming shortly.
