Region of Origin

Dazkiri means "bare field" in Turkish. It is a village in Anatolia where rugs tend to feature a large diamond medallion with spandrels, where the medallion and field are filled with geometricized florets.

Material Details

Wool is the most popular fiber used in Turkish rugs because it is supple, durable, and plentiful in supply.
