Region of Origin

Avanos, in central Anatolia, is famous for its handicrafts, including rugs and pottery. Rugs from Avanos often feature geometricized floral motifs and scalloped-edge fields.

Material Details

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.
