Region of Origin

Sille, a village in central Turkey near Konya, is known for its wide runners that feature Anatolian patterns with repeating geometric medallions—commonly woven with distinctive red or coral warps and wefts.

Material Details

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 knotted 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.
