  • Angular edges and shapes like diamonds, squares, lattices, crosses, and stripes as well as geometric animals
  • Simple, tribal, bold, and colorful motifs that originate from the Anatolian region that comprises the majority of modern-day Turkey
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.

How to Style This Rug

Extra-large rugs bigger than 7’ x 10’ help define larger spaces.
