Region of Origin

Isparta in southwest Turkey is considered one of the major rug production centers in Turkey. Turkish motifs and floral designs are common in Isparta rugs.

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.

How to Style This Rug

Add an accent with petite rugs up to 3’ x 5’.
