Region of Origin

Kars, found in the easternmost part of Turkey (near the Caucasus border), is known for its rugs woven with modified Caucasian designs. Almost always constructed with an all-wool foundation, these rugs are coarsely woven in either earth-toned natural wool colors (like cream, gray, and brown) or pastel pinks and blues.

Material Details

Wool is the most widely used fiber in Turkish rug design. Not only is it plentiful in supply, it’s durable, long-lasting, and incredibly soft—so it’s super comfy to walk and relax on.

How to Style This Rug

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