Maden is a town in central Anatolia known for rugs featuring Anatolian motifs, but with uniquely oversized floral designs and scalloped (instead of stepped) details throughout.

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.
