Cannakkale is the modern-day site of ancient Troy. Rugs from this region are known for their classic Turkish geometric designs, red wefts, and plush 100% wool texture.
Kork wool comes from the underbelly and neck of the sheep. Because both areas are slightly more protected from the elements, this wool has a higher lanolin content and a much softer handfeel—leaving behind a rich, silky luster.
