Region of Origin
- Lined with a triplet of geometrically stylized Anatolian medallions
- Simple, tribal, bold, and colorful motifs that originate from the Anatolian region that comprises the majority of modern-day Turkey
Yahyali is a town in central Anatolia near Cappadocia, and is known for rugs in primary colors (red, yellow, and blue) that feature Anatolian motifs, often including a hexagonal or diamond medallion with pendants on a red field.
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.
