Region of Origin

Konya is the former capital of the Selcuk empire from where the earliest weaving traditions can be traced. It remains an important producer of rugs in Turkey.

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.
