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. The foundation that the wool pile is woven onto is made of the long fibers of mountain-dwelling goats and their hardy, durable goat's hair wool.
