Fethiye is a seaport town in southwestern Anatolia. Rugs from this area tend to feature two to three vertical panels—each depicting a geometric floral or tree of life motif.
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.
