- A modern carpet-weaving mainstay, this medallion centerpiece design was inspired by 15th-century Persian manuscript covers

Urgup, in central Turkey, is known for small rugs with Anatolian motifs cast in earth-toned colors—like brown-gold and reddish orange.
Wool is the most widely used fiber in Turkish rug design. Not only is it plentiful in supply, it’s durable, long-lasting, and incredibly plush—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on. This wool pile is woven onto a cotton foundation, another popular choice in rug design. The cotton used is rigid, strong, and provides a sturdy foundation that’s designed to last a lifetime—or ten.
