Region of Origin

Milas is the center of weaving in Western Turkey and its rugs often feature graphically arresting geometric patterns.

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.
