We love sourcing vintage rugs and magic carpets from across the globe, each made by talented hands that hold the knowledge and skill of generations past.
Diverse in terrain and climate, Anatolia (now Turkey) sits where Europe and Asia meet and is bordered by the Black and Aegean Seas. With a landscape of mountains and coastal plains, its summers are hot and its winters below freezing. It was originally out of necessity that these beautiful rugs were made, to keep warm the camps and homes of nomadic tribespeople.
Anatolian carpets are amongst the oldest and most striking in the world and we are continually blown away by their unparalleled beauty and high quality. Known for their intense colours, abstract designs and often floral motifs, they are the product of the region’s treasured carpet weaving traditions that have been practiced for thousands of years.
This particular carpet is over 50 years old and boasts a traditional design in a warm, soft palette. Its base is cotton while the pile is made of tightly woven, symmetrical wool knots. This rug is perfect for high traffic areas in the home, like the living room or under your dining table, as its quality will withstand the movements of daily life.
Adding a rug to your space is an investment. We have put together a comprehensive guide for how to choose, care for and protect the longevity of your new magic carpet. You can read ithere.
