Region of Origin
Avanos, found in central Anatolia, is famous for its handcrafted goods, including rugs and pottery. Rugs from this area tend to feature geometric floral motifs and scalloped-edge fields.
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.
