Region of Origin

Anatolian rugs are defined by their tribal, geometric designs, rich in symbols reflective of life in traditional households.

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.
