About this rug,

Rugs from Eastern Turkey stand out with their unique designs and colors. They have more of a tribal look compared to rugs from other regions of Turkey. Especially rugs from the city of Kars such as this one have bold symbols, a very high quality wool and dazzling colors. This rug has uncommon dimensions for its region. Kars rugs are generally narrow area rugs. They are wider than runners but longer than area rugs. This rug however does not conform to the expected dimensions of its region and it is a quite wide area rug. It has a medallion design with a birdlike figure in the middle reminding us of Cahalaberd rugs from the Caucasus known with their stylized bird designs. The birdlike figure is surrounded by two diamond shape figures and the emptiness of the field between each design gives the gazer space to contemplate the design. Tribal design of the corner brackets agree with the design approach of the region. The border is a darker color and is surrounded by flowers and branches.

Colors: copper, russet, brown, ivory, pale pink.

All of our rugs are handmade using traditional methods and natural materials.

Our photos are taken in natural light and there is very little to no color editing on photos. The very little editing is done to reflect the truecolors of the rug.
