    Region of Origin

    Anatolia makes up the majority of modern-day Turkey. Rugs from this region are defined by their tribal and geometric designs—with plenty of symbols reflecting life from traditional households.

    Material Details

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

    How to Style This Rug

    Spruce up smaller spaces with small rugs between 3’ x 5’ and 5’ x 8’.
