Region of Origin

Cannakkale is the modern day site of ancient Troy. Rugs from this region are distinct in their classically derived Turkish geometric designs, red wefts, and plush 100% wool texture.

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.
