Region of Origin

Siirt, in southeastern Turkey, is well known for lightweight, flatwoven kilims made from goat hair in shades of black, white, gray, and tan. These one-of-a-kind kilims feature a lustrous pile achieved by brushing the front-facing surface of the rug to tease up longer fibers.

Material Details

Goat hair fibers are longer and firmer than those of sheep’s wool. In a Siirt kilim, the goat hair is first flatwoven then brushed repeatedly to tease out a textured pile, imitating the furry hide of an animal pelt.
