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

Kork wool is shorn from the underbelly and neck of the sheep. Because these areas are more protected from the environment, the resulting wool has a much higher lanolin content and feels softer in texture and has a greater luster and sheen.
