  • A variation of motifs—simple, tribal, bold, and colorful—all hailing from the Anatolian region (modern-day Turkey)

  • Stripes—a simple and timeless classic

Region of Origin

Konya is the former capital of the Selcuk empire—where the earliest traditions of weaving can be traced back to. Today, the area is still a key producer of rugs in Turkey.

Material Details

Hemp is one of the most durable natural fibers out there. Turkish artisans crafted pure hemp rugs up until the ‘60s—when cannabis production became illegal. Women used hemp rugs outdoors for kitchen working, laying wheat, rice, and herbs on top of them to dry. Hemp is especially good for summer or hot climates: it stays cool underfoot even as temperatures rise.
