Region of Origin

Yesilhisar, near Cappadocia in central Anatolia, is known for rugs woven with a unique, pink field.

Material Details

Kork wool comes from the underbelly and neck of the sheep. Because both areas are slightly more protected from the elements, this wool has a higher lanolin content and a much softer handfeel—leaving behind a rich, silky luster.
