Rug-weaving has always played a part in Turkish history, but it's still very much alive today. The difference is that, nowadays, rug-weavers are no longer restricted to certain materials and styles. Instead, weavers are able to try new designs and materials to produce contemporary twists on old styles.
Our wonderful fashion carving rug is a direct product of this – a play on old tribal designs that have been modernised to look more simplistic and minimalistic, and made from a contemporary polypropylene yarn that is so much more practical than traditional materials. This rug also has a lovely thick pile for added comfort and a more defined, carved-out texture.
