Region of Origin
Mut is a seaside town in southern Turkey known for nomadic goat hair kilims with geometric designs hand embroidered in wool yarn.
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.
