Region of Origin

Pure wool Yagcibedir rugs, produced in mountain villages of northwestern Turkey, are known for their quality, geometric motifs, and distinct red and dark blue color palettes.

Material Details

Kork wool is shorn from the underbelly and neck of the sheep. Because these areas are more protected from the environment, the resulting wool has a much higher lanolin content and feels softer in texture and has a greater luster and sheen.
