Region of Origin

Mut is a seaside town in southern Turkey known for nomadic goat hair kilims with geometric designs hand embroidered in wool yarn.

Material Details

Goat hair and wool each have properties favorable to creating a durable frame. Cotton is rigid and strong and does not warp easily over time. Goat hair, which is also a naturally durable fiber, has long, bristly strands that create texture throughout the kilim. Finally, because wool takes dye very well, all embroidery is done with vegetable-dyed wool yarn for decorative effect.
