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

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.

How to Style This Rug

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