Curator's Notes

Region of Origin

Konya is the former capital of the Selcuk empire—where the earliest traditions of weaving can be traced back to. Today, the area is still a key producer of rugs in Turkey.

Material Details

Hemp is one of the most durable natural fibers out there. Turkish artisans crafted pure hemp rugs up until the ‘60s—when cannabis production became illegal. Because of the ban, hemp kilims are incredibly hard to come by. In this instance, Anatolian symbols woven from wool have been hand-embroidered into the hemp base.

How to Style This Rug

Add an accent with petite rugs up to 3’ x 5’.
