This piece features a handspun, twisted yarn that's woven into a looped construction, inspired by the rugs woven by nomadic Turks who used these as beds in their tents.
The first weavers were nomadic, carrying their looms on their backs as they migrated with their flock. The resulting weaving was a narrow panel, which they’d join with other panels to create a multi-panel kilim. Each panel would vary in length, creating an occasional, charming asymmetry that will interact unexpectedly with furniture and add interest to your floor.
Region of Origin
Izmir, located on the west coast of Anatolia, serves as a key collection and distribution center for rugs woven along the coastal region.
Mohair, made from the coats of Angora goats, is considered a luxury fiber for its soft, silk-like textile. But it’s not only beautiful, it’s hardy: a piece of mohair is stronger than a piece of similarly-sized steel. In this piece, it's mixed with wool for durability and texture.
We recommend that you regularly vacuum your rug to remove dirt and grime. Depending on how heavily your rug is used, just once or twice a month is adequate. Too much vacuuming can wear down the knots and fibers more quickly. If you have a suction attachment on your vacuum cleaner, use that instead of a rotary vacuum.
Every few months, you’ll also want to flip your rug over and vacuum the back to get the grit out of the foundation of the rug. It also helps to rotate your rug once a year to ensure even wear over time.
Every 3-5 years, we recommend getting your rug professionally hand-washed. Please do not take it to get steam or dry cleaned—this will almost certainly damage the rug! Hand-washing requires the use of a pH-balanced shampoo, worked into the rug by hand with a soft-bristled brush, before being rinsed thoroughly. This process should be repeated a few times.
In case of spills:
If the spill is organic and non-oily (e.g., wine), use a paper towel or cloth to blot the liquid. Add some clean water sparingly to the spot to dilute the stain (or wet a paper towel or cloth) and blot. Repeat this process until the stain is removed.
If the stain is persistent, resist the urge to scrub. Scrubbing can damage the wool fibers and more easily allow the stain to penetrate. You may try using a mild detergent, such as very diluted dishwashing soap, following the same blot-and-rinse procedure.
If the spill is a denser, more oily liquid, try first to scoop what you can from the surface using a spoon or perhaps some heavier paper, and then do the blot-and-rinse. If the spill is significant, non-organic and/or composed of chemical substances, or the above methods don’t work, we suggest getting the rug professionally hand-washed as soon as possible.
For rugs with deeply saturated color palettes, be sure to spot-clean them in an area that can be hosed down immediately after, as some color bleeding may occur.
Our Turkish rugs are each one-of-a-kind. Many are made between 30 and 100 years ago, and curated by us. Others are fresh off the loom using traditional techniques. Known for their intricate patterns and tight, sturdy weaves, what began as a homemade, everyday comfort ultimately became a robust industry, embodying a profound artistic expression of Turkey's culture.
