Region of Origin

Adana is a town of south central Anatolia. It serves as a trading center for diverse rugs from the region and it is known for its multipanel kilims.

Material Details

Kork wool is shorn from the underbelly and neck of the sheep. Because these areas are more protected from the environment, the resulting wool has a much higher lanolin content and feels softer in texture and has a greater luster and sheen.
