Vintage rugs from Eastern Turkey stand out with their high quality wool, 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. Another interesting thing about rugs from this region is their size. They are wider than runners and narrower than area rugs. Eventhough this size is common in rugs from this region, it is quite uncommon for Turkish rugs from different regions. 

This rug has four bold medallions in the center of the field. The design of the medallions is a reinterpretation of the famous 'Lori' design of the Caucusus. Medallions are embellished with ram's horn motif which symbolises masculinity. These motifs sprout from the center of the medallions to left and right and they are in the shape of horns. There are protective symbols, the 'S' shaped figures called 'hook' believed to protect from bad luck. There are also star and flower embellishments. Both borders have graphic designs.
