Burdur is a town in western Anatolia known for finely-knotted rugs with Persian motifs. Weavers in the town use a slightly more modern color palette.
Wool is the most popular fiber used in Turkish rugs because it is supple, durable, and plentiful in supply. A cotton foundation is also a popular choice, used to tie the wool knots onto. Cotton is rigid and strong, providing a firm foundation that stands the test of time.
