Manastir in western Anatolia is known for a specific type of tribal kilim featuring contrasting colors, strong geometric designs, and a beautiful abrash.

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.
