Region of Origin

Mut is a seaside town in southern Turkey known for its hardy and tribal goat hair based flatweave kilims embroidered in intricate geometric patterns.

Material Details

Kilims constructed from a blend of goat hair and cotton are incredibly long-lasting. Both fibers are known for their durability, and together create a very sturdy frame. Cotton is rigid, strong, and prevents warping over time, while goat hair is a rugged natural fiber with long, bristly strands that add texture. Once this durable foundation is built, all decorative embroidery is done with vegetable-dyed wool yarn.

How to Style This Rug

Medium rugs between 5’ x 8’ and 6’ x 9’ are loved for their versatility.
