Region of Origin

Isparta of southwest Turkey is considered to be one of the major rug production centers in the entire country. Rugs from this area typically feature traditional Turkish motifs and floral designs.

Material Details

This patchwork rug is made up of many smaller hand-knotted rugs, originally woven with wool weft and warp. Rather than throw out damaged rugs, craftspeople salvaged undamaged pieces from each one, sewing them together onto a cotton backing to make a new rug of heritage quality.

How to Style This Rug

Extra-large rugs bigger than 7’ x 10’ help define larger spaces.
